This year the Science Expo will have an ‘UPCYCLING‘exhibit. We want to bring the science of recycling into functional use.
Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.
Our goal is to get students of Grant to realize science is in everything we do. What better way than to bring two passions very close to the Grant community,science and recycling.
This is a great opportunity for students without a science project to participate in the Science Expo.
