Super Kids Save the World at Sci-Tech

Super Kids Save the World begins its world-saving mission at Sci-Tech Discovery Center on Saturday, June 8.   The world is in trouble and it's up the super kids to do something about it.  How?  Thinking and doing!  Save electricity with a flip of a light switch.  When things break, don't throw them away.  Turn an old tablecloth into a superhero cape.  Fight pollution and take another simple step toward saving the world by recycling one aluminum can at a time.  Ordinary kids make a difference.

Super Kids Save the World is based on the British children's book, George Saves the World by Lunchtime written by Jo Readman and illustrated by Ley Honor Roberts. The book features an ordinary family who in the course of a day "save the world" simply by making responsible choices. George, Flora, and Grandpa demonstrate that by taking simple steps, families can become eco-friendly super-heroes in their own communities.

At the Super Kids Save the World exhibit, kids can tag along on George's heroic adventure and have a super time donning cape and boots to become an energy-saving super hero, peddling a bike to light up a city street, visiting a Farmer's Market, dressing up at the Reuse Charity Shop, making science discoveries about alternative energy sources in the Research Lab, tearing up old newspapers for the bunny's hutch, and decorating get well cards using leftover wrapping paper and other reusable supplies for children staying in local hospitals and much more. Kids and their parents have the power to go green at this super exhibit. Super-hero training starts here with the four R's: Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle!
