Reduce, Reuse, Upcycle!

Student scientists will be introduced to the concept of upcycling. Instead of discarding everyday material, unique and thoughtful items will be created. Throughout the duration of this program, student upcyclers will create a variety of items to
take home. This is an exciting camp for the artistic environmentalist in all of us.
