Green Fair activates bodies, minds and electrodes

The second annual Green Fair on Saturday, April 24, attracted about 200 to 250 people who came to the Glen Helen Building to see, touch and learn about environmental consciousness. About 25 booths, including seed start planting, aluminum can crushing, recycled newspaper hat making and snake charming, engaged participants with interactive educational displays. The event was sponsored by Eco Mental in partnership with the Glen, Central State University, the Black Oak Project, Clay + Star and the Dayton STEM School.

Here Chays Robinson, Dayton, pedaled the STEM School’s Energy Bike whose generator illustrates the difference in the amount of energy it takes to light a fluorescent light bulb versus an incandescent bulb. STEM School student Simon Fisher managed the booth with social studies teacher Kevin Lydy. To learn more about the event and for more photos see this week’s print edition of the Yellow Springs News.
