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%.

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!
