Good news for Boat lovers?


How cool is this. 12 to 17-year-olds are invited to participate the Creative Recycling Centre’s Solar Boat Community Challenge. The challenge is for young Gladstone residents to form a team to build a solar-powered model boat out of recycled materials, and race the boat at this year’s Ecofest. The winning team will be presented with the Solar Boat Community Challenge perpetual trophy, created from recycled materials by local artist Rosemary Anderson. Participants will learn about recycling and solar power. No prior experience is required. All participants will receive a Certificate of Participation. The challenge is free of charge. The boats will be built over two Saturdays, May 12th and 19th. All materials will be supplied. Ecofest is on at the Tondoon Botanic Gardens on Sunday June 3rd, 2018. Numbers are limited and interested groups must register by Friday May 4th by emailing Melissa Dennis at Eqip Gladstone on [email protected] The Creative Recycling Centre is excited to offer this fun and unique community event ideally suited to youth groups, friends and families. The Centre takes a community based creative approach to getting Gladstone region residents talking and thinking more abut waste minimisation, reusing, recycling and environmental protection.
