Have you visited our Mission: Imagination Challenge exhibit? This exhibit is all about stretching imaginations and thinking outside the box while playing and engaging visitors in STEM. To make our exhibit successful, we need a variety of building materials to put in the Mission boxes. It’s a great way to reuse and recycle items that would otherwise be thrown away, think about gift wrap tubes, leftover gift tissue, even old holiday cards!

Here is a list of potential items you might be able to share with us:

  • Broken utensils

  • Old toys

  • Old letterhead

  • Small paper bags

  • Packing peanuts

  • Styrofoam

  • Twist ties

  • Corks

  • Cardboard tubes

  • Empty tape rolls

  • Bottle caps

  • Napkins

  • Clean foil

  • Zip ties

  • Plastic bottles

  • Receipt paper tubes

  • Straws

  • Coffee stirrers

  • Plastic cutlery

  • Plastic bottle wrappers

  • String

  • Any kind of clean scrap plastic

  • Popsicle sticks

  • Plastic or paper cups

  • Rubber bands

  • Office supplies

  • Unused to-go boxes

  • Old greeting cards/advertising mailers

Let us know if you have other items you think will work but aren’t on the list. Donations can be dropped off anytime during our regular open hours. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. We look forward to your support!
