"Bobby" the Robot Lands in Brooklyn!



























Ms. Paul's Class, PS 9, the Teunis Bergen School, Brooklyn, NY

11 kids. 130 plastic bottles. 1 goal. ScrapKins was invited to inspire the 4th graders at PS9 with a simple idea: What can we build from a bunch of bottles? With our team of builders, a whole lot of enthusiasm and the guidance of the ScrapKins team, "Bobby" the robot was created to live in the school's garden.

Creating a Connection....

This photo captures the spark of joy that happens when kids get empowered by making something. A paper bag, tape and crayons become a pirate hat and create the opportunity for a young mind to play. It's a simple but powerful energy. Instill confidence, create a connection and change the world.

Happy Halloween: Zoe's Guest Monster

       Zoe's Pumpkin Monster, Age 6,          Mountain View, CA 

In honor of Halloween, I'm sharing an awesomely spooky monster that makes the ScrapKins proud. (Although I wouldn't want to meet it in a dark alley.) Zoe's monster has skulls for hair, a pumpkin nose, a flat mouth because he doesn't smile, big ears with earrings and a bloody chin. Yikes!!!!
