According to Boys & Girls Club Site Director Patricia Patrick, the eight participating students chose the theme, "Blast Trash Out of This World" and created a rocket ship out of a metal trashcan. Students used recycled cardboard boxes for the ship’s wings and recycled chicken wire with foam insulation for the nose cone. Donated bed risers served as thrusters and the accompanying sign was made from soda cans and recycled wood flooring. Students painted details on the rocket and sign with acrylic paint. The can will be on display in the Boys & Girls Club room at the school and was featured at the "Rockets and Wheels" expo sponsored by the Boys & Girls Club of West Central Missouri during national Boys & Girls Clubs week March 20-26.
