For the past couple of weeks, my peers and I have been working on constructing a vessel made of recyclable materials.
Our facilitators Mr. Colaluca, Mr. Ponticorvo and Ms. Norcia have been guiding us through this exciting, detailed process.
At least 80% of our vessel had to be made out of used/recycled materials. Our building materials could make up no more than 20%.
We were engineers in planning the floatable layout; artists- as we thought of creative designs and most importantly, a TEAM- as we worked successfully together.
This Saturday, April 25th we plan to race our creation at the Hackensack Riverkeeper's Second Annual REYCLED REGATTA in Overpeck County Park during Earthfest.
If you are interested in supporting our construction or wish to cheer us on, call the Explore 2000 Office 201-631-6396.
Come back to our website sometime next week to see how well our team does!!
