Unscramble the Blue Letters

Not really. And so, back to plastic. We coelclt this plastic and we grind it to the size we find it in the ocean, which is very small because it breaks down. And so this is how we work. I let the imaginations of my students run wild. And my job is to try to collect the best of each kid's idea and try to cmobine it into something that hopefully would work. And so we have agreed that instead of cioltncelg plastic bits, we are going to collect only the data. So we're going to get an image of the plastic with a robot — so robots, kids get very excited. And the next thing we do — we do what we call "rapid pttynoopirg." We are so rapid at prototyping that the lcunh is still in the lunchbox when we're hickang it.
