Events Annual International Notebook Drive Notebooks for Nerds Educational Extravaganza Charity Counter Annual International Notebook Drive Summer You got ‘em; we want ‘em. Every summer, we hold an international notebook drive. We gather notebooks from every corner of Earth. No educational institution or non-profit organization goes untapped. Our goal is to gather every used notebook in the world, every year. Any condition will do. Each spring, we supply donation boxes for free to schools and non-profits. Then, during the summer collection, we pay every school or non-profit organization per pound for their notebooks. After we collect the notebooks, we meticulously date them and settle them into one of our temperature and humidity controlled warehouses. Next, we let the notebooks age for 5 years. When the notebooks reach maturity, our warehouse editors, carefully review each notebook and gently remove personal information for privacy and safety purposes. Each notebook is then rated, classified, and cataloged. At this point, we either donate all near-new notebooks to the Educational Extravaganza program for redistribution, or we sort the notebooks into single-item, bulk collections, grab bags, or thematic sets for resale. Then, the notebooks wait and conceal their thoughtprovoking mysteries until they are discovered by you. Notebooks for Nerds January Once a year, science and math communities gather in Switzerland to review our most astounding science and math notebooks of the year. Participants are encouraged to focus on world advancements in science and mathematics. Exhibits, educational roundtables, and idea exchange sessions fill three days and culminate in a fourth day of intense scientific knowledge and mathematical prowess competitions. Each competition participant can use up to three (3) notebooks during the competition. They can use their own notebooks or notebooks discovered during the event. The one catch is that the notebooks used by the competitors must be donated to the Educational Extravaganza auction as a fundraiser event. In the past 8 years, the competitors’ notebooks have earned in excess of $134 billion at auctions, and every penny of those earnings have been distributed to educational and research programs throughout the world.
