Super Kids Save the World

Open January 18, 2014

It’s saving electricity with a single flip of a light switch. It’s the power to turn an old tablecloth into a super hero cape and the ability to repair something instead of throwing it away. It’s fighting pollution and saving the world one aluminum can at a time. It’s ordinary kids making a difference. It’s Super Kids Save the World!

Super Kids Save the World gives kids (and their parents) the power to go green! Designed with “green” materials and practices, this super exhibit gives kids real super hero training starting with the four R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle!
