Learn about sustainable technologies and participate in a recycling drive as you learn about environmental best-practices at Missouri University of Science and Technology’s Earth Day celebration Thursday, April 20. All events are free and open to the public.
Beginning at 10 a.m., visitors can visit educational booths hosted by area and campus organizations on the lawn of the Havener Center. During the celebration, visitors can register to tour the Solar Village and EcoVillage, Missouri S&T’s solar-powered houses.
Over 900 children from area schools will be on campus to learn how to limit the impact of their carbon footprint. Youth educational programs include face painting, bike repair, story telling, making bird feeders, trees to take home and plant, and more.
The 2017 Earth Day celebration is hosted by Missouri S&T’s Center for Sustainability. For details about exhibiting at Earth Day or bringing your group to the event, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
