2013 Science on the Green
We look forward to offering Science on the Green again in 2013 at our new location in Montpelier. After flooding in Waterbury in August 2011, the event planners and volunteers have been separated and placed in temporary office locations around the state. We will be reunited in Montpelier this winter and we will regroup and plan an even more amazing Science on the Green in 2013.

Take a look at past SOTG events!
in the fall of 2006 the doors were open for a day of Environmental
Exploration at the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources. School classrooms
all over Vermont traveled to Waterbury for a long half-day exploration
of science, the environment, and how all the small things we do, taken
together, make a BIG difference. That year we hosted over 450 teachers
and students at the Waterbury Complex in 22 different workshops and
fieldtrips covering a broad spectrum of environmental issues providing
hands-on opportunities to learn about environmental protection efforts.
On our Second Annual SOTG day,
in September 2007, we hosted over 650 teachers and
students! In 2008 there were over 800 students
from more than 50 classes at over 20 participating schools who
attended two SOTG events. The 2009 event hosted over
700 students, as did the 2010 day. We hope to continue sharing our love of our surroundings
with young people for many years to come.
