“At Re-Teck, we felt an urgency to reach and educate this younger demographic on the dangers of used electronics being improperly discarded in landfills where they can leak dangerous chemicals into the environment,” stated Tony Wang, CEO of Re-Teck. “The hope is that the game inspires them to take an active role in their homes, schools and communities as they engage and educate others to properly recycle electronics. Recycle Avengers enlightens players to the possibilities that exist when we recycle, repurpose and reuse discarded electronics.”
STEM students at R.L. Turner High School in Carrollton, Texas, played an integral role in the creation of the gaming app by developing game concepts. Katheryn Wendling, Director of Technology at R.L. Turner, believes the real world experience her students gained by participating in the creation of a game that made it into the marketplace will propel them in their education and careers beyond high school.
The Time Group, Re-Teck’s Dallas-based Marketing Firm, is coordinating kick off events with schools nationwide as well as placing Recycle Avengers collection bins in schools, businesses and government facilities to help communities recycle smarter.
