West Miami Middle Community School

This Challenge was aimed at educating the school and community on the importance of recycling cell phones to reduce the need to mine Coltan. We put flyers around the school, set up a photo booth to take pictures with a Gorilla & Banana and encouraging everyone to bring their cell phones for recycling. The kids were asked to post their pictures on Facebook and collect cell phones, ear buds, and chargers. We competed through homeroom for a Banana party (with cake/ bananas and danced Gagnam style for the video). Six other elementary schools helped us. Overall, this project was educational and fun.
