reCREATE will host Junk 2 Genius 2017 at Westfield Galleria at Roseville in Center Court, near JCPenney on Saturday, August 19 from 1-4pm. Which team will reign supreme?
What exactly is Junk 2 Genius, you ask?
• Twelve Teams — businesses, social groups and nonprofit teams
• A box of mystery “junk” and a visit to the «junkpile»
• A mystery theme
• A race against the clock to make the best sculpture
• Assistance to add technology and laser cut items
• An excellent team building event
• A way to spotlight the “Genius” of your company (all sculptures will be on display through August 24th for people to vote on their favorite sculpture)
• A great way to support STEAM Education, ensuring our region’s future workforce is strong
• An amazing raffle with huge prizes (Sacramento Kings, Disney and more!)
• A whole lot of fun
Teams arrive with their tools and secret weapon, and are given a box of ReCreate materials to make a work of art. The theme is announced and 3 hours later, teams unveil their sculptures.
Public Voting: will be held from Sunday, August 20 — Thursday, August 24. The winning sculptures will be on display through Labor Day.
About ReCreate: Last year, ReCreate took its «More Art! Less Waste!» program to over 15,000 elementary school students in the greater Sacramento region. In addition to this program, we offer a multitude of workshops at our site, from “caregiver-and-me” crafting for toddlers to fine arts classes for adults to maker education summer camps for tomorrow’s engineers—all using the materials we diverted from landfill, simultaneously helping our planet and educating people on why we should reduce, reuse, and recycle. ReCreate also launched our GeniusMobile — a mobile maker space to bring hands-on project based STEAM learning to schools in our region.
Junk 2 Genius helps fund Recreate's STEAM focused educational GeniusMobile — that brings hands-on maker projects to kids in Placer and Sacramento County area schools.
