We’ve launched an educational website, targeted at 8-12 year olds, but really relevant to everybody over 8 years old. Please share with friends and family, and take a look for yourself.
The website takes us through the different stages of a phone’s life from mining, to processing and assembly, to reuse/recycling. And we introduce the idea that critical raw materials are doubly important as they are needed for scaling up renewable energy.
It’s optimised for desktop and tablets — for now, we’re imagining this used at home between parents and kids.
But in future, we’ll have this loaded on tablets at our events for people who are waiting at our Restart Parties. (Also, we’ve created a version for use on a large screen, in museums. If anybody has access to a venue with a large touch screen, it could be used there.)
Also, we can see this being part of a “blended learning” lesson in classrooms.
We’d love your feedback, especially as event hosts and educators.
