Rubbish is a program that teaches kids to express themselves by re-purposing the materials around them to participate in arts and recreational activities. Rubbish encourages teacher-student collaboration to engage students with activities that challenge their spontaneous construction- based thinking. Play and experimentation take the lead in the curriculum, so that kids allow themselves to test their theories and try again. There are no wrong ways of problem solving, only more efficient ways.

In low income districts, supplies are a luxury that many classrooms are denied. Teachers are given minimal teaching materials and are expected to “make do.”Programs are losing significant funding nationwide. How will children be able to have the healthy experimentation that they deserve without the fear of being wrong?


The Workshop, Rubbish is program for creative kids to re-purpose the materials around them. Rubbish will collaborate with after-school programs beginning with 4th and 5th graders, throughout the year, as well as summer camps. These workshop promote learning through creativity and spontaneous play.
