Delta students were given a challenge on how to educate their classmates on proper recycling practices.
The Delta School District had just installed a new four-bin system at all the schools, the only problem was students weren’t always sure about what garbage to put into which bin.
The problem inspired students from the Film Academy to produce a comedic short film about two students who battle it out when the recycle bins in a school hallway turn into a glorified, larger-than-life holographic video game.
When the video was complete, they connected with another group of students who had been gathering data on the most common types of garbage students were throwing away and items that were causing confusion.
Students took that information and created an incentivized online game (involving a contest) where participants must identify which bins certain types of garbage go in. The final result is an online, educational game called “Recycle Game On.”
The contest is open to all, however only Delta students will qualify for the prizes. One high school student and one elementary student will be chosen from the recorded participants to win an iPad Mini2.
