The Vermont Energy Education Program (VEEP) is coming to the Sustainable Living Expo on Saturday, April 11, at Middlebury Union High School, with a full menu of hands-on, minds-on activities for kids (and adults) throughout the day. Come explore electricity at the hands-on generation stations, engineer a boat with superior sails, or build and test a solar car that you can “walk” on a leash. “Every time I lead the sailboat engineering activity,” says VEEP educator Laura MacLachlan, “I am amazed at the design and creativity of students and their joy at watching their boat sail down the track.”
VEEP is committed to engaging students in energy literacy through our outreach educators and continuing the learning with our energy focused curricula, trainings and kits. Want to learn more about VEEP’s mission and work with schools? Come test out our equipment and find out how you can bring VEEP to your school. Admission to the kids’ activities is free with your $5 admission to the Expo.
