YOUNG CLIMATE scientists focus on saving the planet—

from ourselves.

Design a wind turbine. Plant a “seed bomb” in your garden. Calculate your family’s eco-footprint. Through an examination of energy efficiency, food systems, and household waste, Earth Lab studies the human impact on our environment and how we can lead a more sustainable daily life. By the end of the week, students will create a concrete plan for taking action—at home and in the community—to improve the world we live in.
