Trash for Teaching
T4T inspires children and educators by using non-traditional, repurposed materials in unique ways. We believe that curiosity, experimentation, and hands-on learning reinforce critical thinking and creative problem solving – skills and habits that serve all disciplines and all ages.
By repurposing manufacturing overruns, discards and castoffs, originally headed for landfill, and reusing these items in various ways, T4T not only helps the environment, we are also creating awareness in educational institutions, community organizations, and young minds.
The T4T community constantly strives to foster partnerships with likeminded organizations, and to develop innovative ways of using unique materials in creative projects that inspire hands-on discovery in science, art, math, literacy and more.
