As part of our school-wide Digital Citizenship Day on February 24th, all science classes had a research/poster contest (special thanks to one of our science teachers-Lauren Wulker- for the idea!). The students were given a reading prompt and some guiding questions over the weekend and returned to DigCit day on Monday to talk about responsible disposal and recycling of electronic waste. The end goal is that the top poster(s) will be displayed somewhere in the building with a place to recycle electronic products like batteries and cell phones.
Students were able to team up with a couple of their classmates or work alone on their posters. They were also allowed to create a poster on any material they wanted- poster board, electronic, etc. Most chose to create theirs on an actual poster board or paper. They were displayed in the library and teachers came in Tuesday and Wednesday to vote on their top three favorites.
I was so impressed by the results! The following pictures are just the top 4-5 posters from each teachers’ classes.
The top three winning teams received a pizza lunch from LaRosa’s. And the winners are…(drum roll please)…
How do you promote the responsible disposal and recycling of electronic waste is your school?
