Super Kids Save the World

1,500 to 3,000 square feet

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 after a crash, boom, bam. 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!

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. Developed by the Eden Project, an educational charity dedicated to showing the importance of taking care of our world, this book features an ordinary family, who in the course of their day save the world simply by making responsible choices. George, Flora and Grandpa demonstrate that by taking simple steps, families can become eco-friendly superheroes in their own communities.

Target Audience:
Children ages 2 through 10.
