Oakville Elementary School is hosting the eighth annual Creative Challenge.
The Creative Challenge is used to showcase young students’ creativity and problem-solving techniques. This year’s topic is upcycling, which is taking some reject object that belongs on the curb and making it into something beautiful or useful, according to a news release written by Oakville Elementary School fifth-grader Matthew Meyer, who notes that trash is an ever-growing — literally — problem.
The Upcycling exhibit will be on display during regular schools hours until Friday, Dec. 9, at Oakville Elementary School, 2911 Yaeger Road. Some works visitors might see are a birdhouse made of license plates, some jewelry made of “junk” items like buttons, robots made of tins and little pieces like bottle caps and more.
