This story happens before October. A projector called Pup had been used by the teachers for more than five years. Stepping into the sixth year, he wanted to continue his work to project image on the screen so that students could learn better. Projector Pup was satisfied with his work.
When school started in September, Pup had enough light. However, he became weaker in October. Pup was afraid that he could not help the students. However, he did not give up. He tried again and again. Suddenly, in one morning, he had no light at all. Pup had broken down.
It was hard for Pup to predict his fate. Will he be melted or dumped into the landfill? Right, he was in the landfill. It was dull and smelly. There were broken tyres, dented tins, rotten paper boxes and rubbish. Oh no! Would he be compressed or broken apart?
Luckily, Projector Pup’s life changed after he met a boy called Shawn. Shawn came to the landfill. He wanted to find some recycling things for his STEM project. When he saw Projector Pup, he wanted to make a robot which could dance and run.
At Shawn’s home, Projector Pup was broken apart. There were light bulbs, an LCD monitor, a mirror, several circuit boards and lenses. Besides, there were many wires. Shawn was thinking of making many different things.
First, Shawn used one light bulb to make a lamp. It was colourful. He put it in his mum’s bedroom. The light was dim but it was so warm.
Then, Shawn used the lenses to make a glass camera. He used it to take many photos. It was a new invention.
After that, Shawn made a robot with Projector Pup’s different parts. The case was made into the robot’s body. The wires were made into the robot’s arms. The lenses were made into the robot’s eyes.
Shawn added a beautiful frame on Projector Pup’s mirror. He put the mirror in the bathroom. The bathroom was shining in a glance.
But sadly, the remaining parts of Projector Pup were still thrown into the rubbish bin. Look! It was a recycling bin. It means that rubbish can be recycled and reused.
Ah! The circuit boards were made into a nice picture. How fun it is!
The metal was melted and made into screws of the bookshelf. The rubber wires were made into water pipes. Everything was USEFUL.1 / 13
