Change the World with an Eggbox at East Morton CE Primary School

All fairandfunky workshops encourage participants to look at the world around them and empower people of all ages with the knowledge that their actions can have a positive impact on the world; both locally and globally. We were delighted to be invited to East Morton CE Primary School to kickstart the Year 5 topic looking at energy and the environment.

The workshop began with discussions around the environmental problems facing our world today – pollution, litter, plastic waste, and limited natural resources; and the little steps we can all take to make a difference. Students soon realised they already take little steps to change the world when they walk to school, turn lights off, re-use shopping bags, and recycle waste.

Year 5 were then set a challenge: to create a machine, using recycled packaging, which would help reduce pollution, reduce the impacts of climate change and change the world! The students set to work with great collaborative co-operation:  discussing the challenge, working out how their machine would work and how to make it using the materials available. Each group worked really well as a team with brilliant results:

Rubbish Catcher 2000 – Removes plastic rubbish from the ocean
Terminator Clean-Up 1000 – Hunts rubbish to eat and uses it to power the robot for further clean-up operations.
The Rubbish Scooper – Recycles your rubbish quickly and effectively so you don’t have to!
The Sea Cleaner – A boat that cleans up spillage and littering in the sea, and saves injured animals on its onboard vet clinic.
The Planet Protector – A submarine with wheels, that gathers plastic rubbish in sea and on land, recycling it in to bikes and scooters.

“An engaging, informative and fun workshop that has been a great hook for our new topic. We have lots of ideas and world-changing tips we can share with the rest of the school! The children are now enthused about what little steps they can take next!” Teacher feedback.
