Rockingham Community College students are learning to make their own school supplies from school supplies bins and cans.
In a video on the Rockingham County Community College website, students and faculty are making and using the supplies they have collected from the community.
In one video, students are making their own water filters.
They are using the recycled water containers from the school’s community water system to make the filters, which are reusable and dishwasher safe.
Another student, who also wanted to be named Brie Larson, uses the water filter he made to make his own homemade water softener.
The project took six months to complete and was made using supplies and household items from a community water supply.
“I love school supplies,” Brie said in the video.
“I love that I can do something with them.
I love that they can make me something.
I really do.”
While the project took about two weeks to complete, Brie says the project is a fun way to spend time with his friends and family.
“This was really important to me, to be able to have a hobby that I was able to get a little bit of a boost out of,” he said.
Brie says he hopes the project will inspire others to make fun projects to give back to the community, such as making school supplies for their friends or taking care of their local parks.
“A lot of us just want to make things for fun and enjoy it, but we have to make sure we’re doing it right.
If we’re making stuff, we’re actually putting our lives on the line.
It’s not just making stuff for fun, but making things that are going to last and be used,” he explained.
