Recycle THIS! Interactive game

Recycle THIS!  is an interactive game helping kids learn about recycling.

It’s hard to remember always to recycle. Maybe it would help if you could make a targeted tossing contest out of it every time you threw something into a bin. Well, now you can practice by playing “Recycle THIS!” on NASA’s Climate Kids website. Recyclables, as well as plain old trash, are being thrown out of somebody’s window up above, and, using your tiny “Airburst” tool, you have to deflect each object’s path into the correct bin. Does it belong with glass? Metal? Paper? Plastic? Or is it just trash that will decompose soon enough in a landfill? Music and sound effects (with separate on/off switches) add realism and excitement. You’ll soon be an expert recycler—of whom the planet needs a lot more!
