Our team of innovative S2 scientists were challenged to investigate circular economy and suggest practical ways that it could be implemented in our school. They responded with a fantastic project which took Williamwood’s waste wipes and converted them into classroom show-me-boards. The team worked together to research and plan their investigation and experimented with different methods of producing a show-me-board. The result was an excellent prototype show-me-board which both benefits the school and exemplifies circular economy in action. Well done!
