Science on the Green

Organization(s) Vermont Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description The VT Agency of Natural Resources is sponsoring the third annual Science on the Green event in Waterbury, geared toward 4th to 8th grade students, to learn about environmental science. This popular event features field trips and workshops related to geology, watersheds, waste, drinking water, as well as trips to local businesses including Ben and Jerry's and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters to learn about sustainable business practices. Always popular are field trips to the local wastewater treatment plant. Agency staff and employees work hard to run the workshops and various events and to provide as sustainable an event as possible. In the first year, 450 teachers and students participated, and in year 2 over 650 were hosted.
