Thank you for your advice!! Yes, @s2019 Our plan is to have high school students at a technical school build the machines and everything in the workspace as part of learning manufacturing and welding skills through an engineering and makerspace curriculum. Luckily, we have a local manufacturing company who is on board to mentor and help students learn to build the machines. My big task currently is finishing a budget in order to hopefully win a $50,000 grant for the project. The next phase of the project will be for the high school students to collaborate with elementary students at our IB school to design products to make from the plastic to be used in classes. I’m thinking clipboards, pencil holders, rock wall grips, but I’m excited to see what the kids come up with. The environmental science class will be researching plastic pollution and it’s affect on the oceans. They will present to the elementary students. It will be a wonderful project if we can get the funds!! If you have any advice, please lay it on me. One thing that I would really appreciate would be an approximate cost of the materials for each machine in your experience. According to the PP bill of materials, the shredder should only cost $200, which can’t be right. Thank you!!
