High School Student's Repurposed Projects

I am sure you are just as excited as I was to see 
the final Flea Market Flip projects done by the students.

If you missed the story about how I was lucky enough to get involved with this High School Flea Market Flip class,

Each of the students choosing this class were asked to bring in a project to repurpose. They had a week to take it from the before to the after. They were also required to write a blog post or a tutorial of some kind showing the steps and materials that brought them to the finished project. 

Today was judging day and each student had an Ipad next to their project displaying the tutorial.

The students put a price on their project based on how much they spent and how much they thought they could sell it for. 

Every single project was amazing! The kids were so excited to come to class and get right to work; their final project showed their amazing efforts. 

As you can see from the projects below they are all going to be future repurposing artists.

In the end students from throughout the school were asked to come by and vote for the project they liked best. They put a ticket into a small cup next to the project of their choice. The student with the most votes wins an Amazon gift card.

This should be an elective in every school!
