RGIT Australia's Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) students had fun on an excursion to Reverse Art Truck Inc. in Ringwood as part of CHCECE018 - Nurture creativity in children on Thursday, 9 August 2018.

The unit, Nurturing creativity in children, is aimed at teaching students how to encourage young children to use their imaginations by playing with open-ended materials. Students put their creativity to the test, when they learned how to nurture young imaginations and creativity using solely recycled materials.

Students were divided into four groups and asked to pick a topic for their project. Students worked together to create some amazing projects.

Students learned to place importance on process, rather than the product final product. This is especially important for younger children.
