Building a "Scribble Robot" With the Energizer Bunny!

The Ontario Science Centre
My kids and I descended upon the Ontario Science Centre this morning, to build a "Scribble Robot" using Energizer EcoAdvanced batteries.  This was part of Energizer's "Join Our Journey" initiative, which encourages the next generation of thinkers to begin a STEM journey of their own (science, technology, engineering, and math).  

EcoAdvanced batteries are lauded as the world's first battery made with 4% recycled batteries.  Energizer's goal is to ultimately offer a battery made of entirely recycled materials, and by the year 2025, they hope to reach 40%.  
The Energizer Bunny & My Elated Son
There were smiles all around, as the Energizer Bunny paid a visit to the children at the event.  Even though the kids were exuberant, the Bunny was tireless--and never seemed to run out of "energy".

Then the kids built their own simple "Scribble Robot", using only a paper cup, tape, magic marker, paper, clothespin, AA Energizer EcoAdvanced battery, and a wired propeller!  What a fun little machine!

CONTEST (CANADA):

Hey young Canadians, Energizer invites you to "Join Our Journey" by entering drawings of your dream creature to joinenergizer.ca!  The winner will get a chance to work with experts in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), have the creature brought to life with the Energizer EcoAdvanced battery, AND win $10,000 towards an RESP!

For details of the contest, click the VIDEO below!

What career do you think your child or grandchild would pursue with a $10,000 RESP?  Do you believe that batteries containing other recycled batteries are a step in the right direction for the environment?
