2018 Year 3-4 Winners

Best Entry Overall – Swap Machine

Our invention is a reverse vending machine that will swap your recycle materials for recycle dollars. The recycle dollars can be used to things in the canteen. The materials that can be recycled are paper, HDPE plastic, PET plastic, steel cans, aluminium cans and glass.

To use our machine, students will need to first scan their canteen cards and then their recycle materials with bar codes. They will get money for each material to spend in their school canteen. If students don’t have a card or bar code in the material they just recycle.

We used light and movement sensors to make our machine automatic and also has braille to help people who are blind.
