We’re excited to share some fun updates in our Educational programming!
SCRAP education programs teach the concepts and benefits of creative reuse with goals of sustainable behavior change; combining waste reduction, art and environmental education, and creative wellness.
To help shape our programming for your interests, we present the SCRAP Guides in: STEAM, Creative Wellness, Resourcefulness & Entrepreneurship, Arts & Crafts, Planet & Play. Our programs, lessons, and activities have at least one of these in mind. Read more on each Guide below and with our Education Programs: www.scrapcreativereuse.org/Education-Programs

These programs inspire creativity and play in the natural world, investigating nature and playing creatively and sustainably in our surrounding environments. When humans have a relationship with the outside world, they care about it. Play allows us to feel free to explore and express ourselves without self-judgment or inhibition, to participate for the sheer joy of the experience, and to think creatively, flexibly, and innovatively.
Examples include nature crafts, outdoor learning opportunities, and ecology-guided lessons.
