RECYCL3D Club

Four McKay seniors (Lorenzo A, Luis C, Cristofer F, and Saul M) had the opportunity to be part of Oregon’s Lab2Market. This was a three day intensive workshop and networking dinner where entrepreneurs and innovators were able to refine their concepts with direct help from Touchdown Ventures and their team of venture capitalists. Our RECYCL3D team has been working this summer to develop 3D filament out of recycled lunchroom trash. RECYCL3D will be presenting their CleanTech business September 14th at Oregon’s Best Fest.
