BRING Recycling's Product Design Challenge

Posted by Deb Jolda at 2/24/2017

Students in all grades are invited to transform salvaged materials into new and relevant products, such as jewelry, furniture, home decor, etc. Students can sign up individually or as part of a team.

All designers must participate in a mandatory Materials Selection Day on Saturday, March 4 between 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. During the selection period, designers will pick from a pre-selected array of BRING material. These materials are FREE, and must be incorporated into your product design. If you are unable to attend the Materials Selection Day, you may schedule a make-up selection time (March 6 – 8).

In addition to the free material, each designer or design team will receive $20 in BRING Bucks and $5 in MECCA Bucks to spend as they wish on salvaged materials. New materials and used materials from other sources may also be used.

Designers have seven weeks from the Materials Selection Day to design and build their products. All projects must be completed by Saturday, April 22, and transported to Wheeler Pavilion at the Lane Events Center.
