Trasharyans

The students used background in environmental science and social science to promote environmental education to school kids in Armenia. Armenia is a landlocked state, it is identified as the 6th country that produces the most waste per capita. Students worked to develop an interactive game of trash monsters with incentives for schools and students to organize waste responsibly. They researched prototypes of waste sorting mechanisms and games. They worked with ISSD on the lack of waste management practices in Armenia and investigated the lack of waste management education, specifically for elementary school children. Through the use of current trash sorting games on the market, the students wanted to determine the feasibility of producing an interactive waste sorting classroom activity.
