Section 2: Recyclable SuppliesTo top of page.

Recyclable supplies are a precious commodity on the list of usable items for a science club ! Recyclable supplies used in the food industry are well suited for the use in a science club and are generally very easy to work with. Bottles, tops, etc. in various shapes, colours and sizes make for very handy storing and mixing units when doing chemistry. Plastic containers may work wonders as boats or even when building mechanical structures, especially when a material that is more resistant to moisture is needed.

Recyclable supplies multiply quickly. A storage method for the different recyclable supplies will be of an advantage. For example plastic bottles may be stored upright separated with flat carton cut to size between each layer of plastic bottles. Finding an effective and efficient method of transport for your recyclable supplies will be of an advantage.

Recyclable supplies:

  • Recyclable supplies are generally easy to work with and do not require specialized tools.
  • Recyclable supplies are generally soft, flexible, pliable and can generally be held together with some sticky tape, even when subjected to drops of water.
  • Recyclable supplies are generally used in the food industry and may be regarded as safe to handle.
  • Recyclable supplies are generally light in weight and make for easy transport, even when you need to carry huge bags of lightness.
  • Recyclable supplies used in the food industry are available in abundance.

PhotoDescription
Tealight candleholder made of white stinkwood.This wonderful idea of a tealight candleholder was presented in a magazine, The Home Handyman South Africa October 2013 Vol 20 No 10. We have incorporate the idea in our science club activities and created our very own and unique tealight candleholders. The parents, especially the moms appreciate the creativity and functional art in the form of a tealight candleholder made out of solid wood. The wood is white stinkwood. A more natural process of aging was selected for the white stinkwood that produced a more deep brown colour compared to the natural bright and light colour of white stinkwood. The direction of cut is transverse, meaning in a crosswise direction. A spade bit was implemented to create a 40mm round hole in the wood to a depth of approximately 12mm. A paint brush was used to apply a layer of raw linseed oil to the wood and rubbed briskly with a cotton cloth.
Tealight candleholder made of avocado pear.The kiddies thoroughly enjoy working with wood ! The wood is avocado pear, a soft and strong wood with a pleasant scent. The wood is cut before hand with a table saw and sanded by the kiddies with fine 220 grit sandpaper. They enjoy the tickle of the orbital sander and giggle a lot ! Raw linseed oil is used as preservative for the wood and rubbed briskly with a cotton cloth. The spade bit produce a neat round hole for the candles to fit in. The direction of cut is tangential.
Tealight candleholder made of white stinkwood.This is white stinkwood. The light bright colour is the more natural look of white stinkwood. For science club we add feet underneath the holder, with drilled holes for the pressed in dell sticks with a little bit of wood glue. The wood is covered with raw linseed oil and rubbed briskly with a cotton cloth. The white stinkwood produce beautiful grains.
Gift for mom !Pleasant Christmas gifts this season for mom and dad ! Here is handmade soap made of coconut oil scented with lemon grass, wrapped in a colourful paper and decorated with a ribbon.
Gift for mom and dad !Handmade gifts produced by the kiddies for mom and dad. The kiddies have amasing creativity and enjoy creating with colour, shapes, texture !! For dad the gift is a face cloth folded so that it represent a cup cake in a cup cake holder with a fruity sucker in the middle and a card. For mom the gift is mouth-watering chocolate, soap with a delightful message engraved, a tie-on card and paper wipes.
Delicious healthy succulent, watermelon !Healthy and colourful food, watermelon !! The kiddies enjoy succulent and tasty watermelon !! Braai is popular and may include wors for worsrolletjie with tomato sauce and mustard or chicken or mielies ! The kiddies are fast learners in cooking, mixing flour, kneeing dough and baking bread in a steel pot over the coals. Braaing produce a wonderful aroma that fill the air with healthy goodness.
Botany is the study of plants !The mind-blowing life of plants ! The most important characteristics of life are movement, stimulus, metabolism and reproduction. Movement is a change in place or position and with plants that grow from the ground there is only growth movement relating to stems growing in the direction of light (phototropism) and roots growing in the direction of gravity and no direct change relating in position. Plants do not pull up their roots and search for water and nutrients elsewhere. Stimulus registration and stimulus reaction is separate in multicellular plants and are mostly sensitive on the points of their organs for example stems and roots. The plant react through growth movement in other parts of its body. Plant metabolism start with the intake of water (H20) and carbon dioxide (CO2), and the processes of photosynthesis, assimilation and dissimilation follow. Plants may reproduce sexual or asexual and consist of about 95% water.
Chocolate !Chocolate fountain !! Stimulating human taste buds for centuries is popular chocolate! Derived from the seeds inside the cacao pod (fruit of the tree) and need to follow a process of fermentation and roasting for developing flavour. The botanical name of the cacao tree is Theobroma cacao, an evergreen tree growing on average 6m to 8m in height, with long leaves and cacao pods (fruit of the tree) hanging from the tree trunk and not from the branches. The cacao pods are oval in shape and can grow to a weight of about half a kilogram with a yellow to orange colour when ripe. Chocolate produced today are available in many forms, and may be described as dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate. Chocolate desserts may range from chocolate cakes, chocolate brownies, chocolate mouse, choc chip cookies, hot chocolate, chocolate milkshake, etc. Chocolate may also be used for coating purposes for example candy, peanuts, raisins, etc.
Relief woodcarving !Wood is a remarkable substance and may be used to build musical instruments, entire ships may be build from wood, a house or log cabin may be build from wood, wood is used in paper manufacturing and with many more applications. Here the aim is to follow a process of relief woodcarving to create astounding images carved out in wood. The woodcarver is presented with a variety of suitable and beautiful wood types for carving purposes. Tools for woodcarving may include flat chisels, gouge chisels, V-chisels. A hammer may also be employed to assist in the carving process, but the chisels should be manufactured for hammering.
Solar energy !Commonly known as a solar panel or described as a photovoltaic panel, is an amazing device ! It has the ability to convert energy from the sun into much usable electrical energy in the form of direct current + and -. A solar panel need a semiconductor material for example silicone, for the conversion from light to electricity to take place. A hobby type motor is connected directly to a solar panel, causing the shaft of the motor to rotate when the solar panel face the sun.
Wood work !Constructing an open wooden box with center lift handle using plywood. Wood derived from exogenetic trees produce visible growth rings and consist of layers of tissue. The tree grow by placing new tissue on the outside of the previous or old tissue. Growth rings will be revealed by a transverse cut (meaning in a crosswise direction) of a tree-trunk. Timber is produced from trees with an exogenetic growth form and is further divided into softwood (coniferous) and hardwood (deciduous). Trees with an endogenetic growth form, for example bamboo, grow inward and is generally not suitable for lumber or timber.
Foam !Oooh !! It is getting messy !!! Foam, a wonderful substance.
