New computer game teaches recycling fundamentals
Recycling is not a game, until now. The King Arts Complex and the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio have teamed up to fund the creation of a video game that teaches children to recycle. “The Amazing Recyclotron” is a video game that teaches kids the fundamentals of recycling.
The player receives points for recycling paper, plastic, glass and other recyclable materials. However, if the player recycles the wrong items, points are docked
The video game is set up on kiosks throughout the hallways of the king arts complex.
The unveiling of the new video game comes at a time when many communities are rethinking their recycling programs.
“The Amazing Recyclotron” will soon be available for free on the internet. It is a flash program that can be downloaded for use.
