Now in its 42nd year, Earth Day has become a symbol for the care and protection of our natural resources. Orlando Science Center is celebrating Earth Day 2012 with its first “online mini-exhibit”. Over the next five days (corresponding to the number of oceans on the planet), we’ll be publishing articles on the following subjects:
- Conserving energy
- Conserving the land
- Conserving the water
- Conserving the air
- Conserving the climate
These articles will not necessarily take a stand on any given issue. Instead, they’re designed to get you to think and decide where you stand. Each day, you’ll see three articles…
- Learn – an article that helps you learn about a given subject.
- Do – an article that gives you an activity you can do as a family.
- Act – an article spotlighting an organization where you can lend your time and energy should you choose to act.
In celebration of Earth Day, take a look at this video from the Sierra Club featuring some of your favorite celebrities:
We hope that you enjoy our celebration of Earth Day and it gives you new ways to think about the planet you call home!
