How Kid Inventors Can Help the Community

           • Create a trash pickup device using materials in your Makerspace.
             Schedule a community cleanup event where kids can use their inventions.

 

           • Have kids gather recycled materials throughout the week, then create                     something functional using these materials. 

 

           • Use various items in your Makerspace to create an "instrument" of some
