“Creating a Device to Pick Up Trash,” by Arden Fisher


I did a project in school about how to be environmentally friendly and to create a device or prototype to pick up trash. Basically my device was a remote control car with string and cardboard making a flap to pick up the trash (like a scoop on the front) which would then be put in a container. It had a smaller solar powered car pulling the larger car with the trash pickup system. Over the course of the project we made a ton of changes to the vehicle. The device got in the top three projects at school, but didn't win the top spot and go on to regional judging.
