In low income districts, supplies are a luxury that many classrooms are denied. Teachers are given minimal teaching materials and are expected to “make do.”Programs are losing significant funding nationwide. How will children be able to have the healthy experimentation that they deserve without the fear of being wrong?
The Workshop, Rubbish is program for creative kids to re-purpose the materials around them. Rubbish will collaborate with after-school programs beginning with 4th and 5th graders, throughout the year, as well as summer camps. These workshop promote learning through creativity and spontaneous play.
