Scientist's Scoop: Make Earth Day Every Day
Planet Earth is an incredible—and unique—place in our solar system. It is the only planet that supports a diverse system of life! Earth has been able to support and take care of both plants and animals, including humans. So, how do we humans take care of Earth just like it takes care of us?
In this interactive program, students took on the role of Planet Heroes as they are challenged to design and implement solutions to benefit wildlife, ecosystems, and global communities through one avenue: our energy use!
Energy is an important part of our everyday lives. We use energy to cook, get around, and send emails. In this 45-minute program, students will build and reflect upon their own ideas on impacts associated with energy use How do the things I buy, like electronics, impact the amount of energy I use?
Throughout the program, students were challenged to design simple, personal solutions for minimizing negative impacts and learned how people are coming up with innovative sustainable energy alternatives for a brighter future. By the end of the program they created their own Planet Hero Action Plan!
