Recycle Your Electronics Programs for Schools


recycle electrons kidsHi,
 
We are writing to you on behalf of Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) and Recycle Your Electronics.  
 
We hope that your school will be interested in having a Recycle Your Electronics educator visit your school to bring our program of education, interactive in-classroom games and activities to your grades four through eight classes.  
 
We are now booking FREE classroom visits in your area and we’d like to schedule a class at your school in the upcoming weeks. We are touring 250 schools in Ontario and we would like yours to be one of those. Last year we ran a 32 school assembly tour and a university tour to 5 different schools.
 
In our presentation, we’ll use videos, games and activities all geared around recycling education that dovetails with the curriculum approved education modules we’ll provide for follow up in your classroom.
 
Students will learn about:
  • Understanding elements and materials in everyday devices such as rare earth and precious metals.
  • The importance of end of life electronics recycling and participating in sustainability, right here in Ontario.
In addition, we’d also like to know if your school might like to participate in an Electronics Recycling Collection event. It’s a great fundraising program for schools where electronics are returned to the school by parents and families and schools receive funding based on collected materials. It’s a great way to tie in the teaching we’ll already be doing together. If you think your school might be interested in this second element of a collection event, we’ll have someone from OES get in touch with the school contact you provide and they’ll take it from there! 
 
Thanks once again for your interest in the program and your commitment to enhancing your students’ understanding of these critical issues, related to the science curriculum.
 
Here are a few videos to check out from last year.
