OUR SEARCH FOR INFORMATION
We wanted to learn about what happens to metal cans after they leave our house. Two of our team members took a tour of the Miller Recycling Facility in London, Ontario. All of our team members watched a video tour of the recycling plant to see how the machines inside the plant worked.
We learned about simple machines like the ones in the plant by watching Bill Nye the Science Guy and playing a game to identify simple machines in a house from the EdHeads website. We built simple machines: catapults, wheel and axles, gears, inclined plane, lever, and a pulley. Then we were able to use what we learned to
We looked up some questions the recycling plant has not answered on the internet and we also watched other videos about what happens to hazardous materials and what happens to aluminum after it leaves the recycling plant.
