Junk 2 Genius 2015 will be held in front of Whole Foods Market Roseville on June 12th. Who will rein supreme? Will Placer Valley Tourism win again, or was last year beginners luck? Will Blue Line Arts take home the top trophy this year or will a new rookie come in and grab the bragging rights of top genius?
Junk 2 Genius is a Timed Team Art Competition, that is an excellent team building project for companies. Teams arrive with their tools and secret weapon, and are given a box of ReCreate materials to make a work of art. The theme is announced and 2.5 hours later teams unveil their sculptures.
This years Junk 2 Genius will be helping to fund our STEAM* focused educational Maker Mobile - that will bring hands-on maker projects to kids in Placer and Sacramento County area schools. Our Fundraising goal for this program is $30,000 for equipment (Laser cutter, 3-d printer, laminator, a vinyl cutter, a couple tablets) and another $25,000 to help fund consumables used in the school visits. These are lofty goals, but we believe this program will bring great value to our region, and our kids are worth it.
ReCreate thanks our sponsors:

ReCreate is launching an educational maker-mobile. Inspired by the good folks at Stanford University, and their Spark Truck, we want to provide the same type of inspiring STEAM experiences for our region.
We will offer hands-on learning and encouragement for kids to find their inner maker. We need your help. If you think our kids are worth it, would you consider donating to help make our Educational Maker Mobile a reality?
