ASF partners with University of San Diego Professor to transform trash into chain reaction machines

Professor Odesma Dalrymple, Ph.D. (USD Engineering Department) and Executive Director of ASF, Monica Santos collected supplies from Trash for Teaching (http://www.t4t.org) and reInterpret (http://reinterpret.org) for the STEAM curriculum in place for the students of ASF this year.  Using a variety of discarded manufacturing materials, ASF students created Chain Reaction machines that challenged them to think like an engineer to solve real world, systems probIems.  It is amazing to watch the students use these “throw away” items and transform them into treasures of innovation!
