STEM and creativity! From waste paper

In first past of the activity, students find out how waste paper can be recycled in a paper factory. After that, they are challenged to recycle their waste paper.

By means of a blender, they mix the previous swollen pieces of waste paper in a water vessel. By obtaining pulped material and 2 special wires they form new paper sheets. They are left to dry for 2-3 days, in the open air, on a filter holder.

With the sheets previously obtained, they can make beautiful greeting cards.
