2021 Highlights

2021 was a banner year for reDiscover Center. Camps and classes returned as pandemic conditions improved. The Tinkering Toolkit expanded from a pilot to a commercial product going into the hands of hundreds of children. We launched Cardboard City, reDiscover's largest ever public program. Learn all about it in our 2021 Annual Report.

What We Do

We have a huge pile of junk and we know what to do with it. Tinkerers in our programs make everything from wood scrap sculptures to life size super heroes, working go carts, and 25 foot roller coasters. Since 2003, reDiscover Center has worked with local businesses to divert scrap, overstock, and other materials from the trash stream and use them in art, environmental education, and tinkering programs.
