Have you ever made S’mores using only energy from the sun? Join us on a Hero’s journey and learn about how our planet works and how you can use the energy all around us to accomplish everyday tasks. We will learn ways to keep our planet beautiful and explore alternative ways to capture energy. Help us construct a Pizza Box Solar Oven to capture the sun’s energy to make S’mores. Come help us explore why there is sand at the beach and investigate how our Rocky Mountains help form beautiful sandy beaches. Do you ever wonder how canyons are formed?
