“SCRAP is my go-to source for classroom materials and inspiration. They have all sorts of high quality, quirky arty supplies for collaborative projects. Last year, my students adorned paper mache’ cell models with beads, buttons, and fabric from SCRAP. Our lab bins are full of other odds and ends from SCRAP: syringes (without needles!) for experimenting with air pressure, containers for starting seeds, and nature images for creating food webs. Get yourself over to SCRAP and get inspired! It’s great for you, your students, and your community!” - A local middle school teacher
