Welcome Week Activities...in the works
As a part of Welcome Week for incoming students, we will be participating in Utopia on Sunday, August 31st. This event is intended to make students aware of more opportunities and organizations on campus--through the use of games and activities.
We are incredibly excited about the ideas that we have brewing, and would like to share some of those with you!
* Guess the number of bottles in one bale, as well as how long it takes to generate that many.
* Ride a "power bike" (a bicycle connected to a lightbulb or another household item), to see and understand how much energy it takes to power a light bulb.
*Simulate the Pacific Trash Vortex (which is where most of our plastic bags end up), to create awareness for our new plastic bag recycling program.
*Set-up a vignette of items that students could purchase at ReUse and compare their pricing to that of a big box store.
Let us know if you have any other ideas!
