ISRI sponsors an annual video and poster contest for students that features recycling-related themes. The contest is co-presented with JASON Learning, a nonprofit organization managed by Sea Research Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the National Geographic Society. The theme of the 2015 contest is automobile recycling and students in grades 5-12 are invited to participate.
The automobile plays an important role in our everyday lives. Have you ever thought about how many different commodities are needed to make all the parts that go into a car? Did you know that almost all these commodities are recyclable? Your challenge is to research one or more of the commodities that go into making a car and find out what happens to each commodity through the automobile recycling process and beyond.
