Parents and children looking for an enriching and fun activity during the traditional school spring break are encouraged to consider participating in “What’s Your Pollution IQ?” a hands-on program put on by Gateway Technical College for students grades 5 through 7.
The free, 90-minute program will provide children the opportunity to explore environmental issues, specifically focused on pollution and the steps they can take to reduce pollution. The programs, to be held at Gateway’s Center for Sustainable Living on the Kenosha Campus as well as the Burlington Center, will include hands-on activities and a video presentation.
“The Center for Sustainable Living at Gateway is pleased to offer the first of many programs for area youth to learn about sustainability and environmental responsibility,” said center manager James Gray. “These programs give children unique, hands-on opportunities to explore the wonders of nature and science, and equip them with the knowledge they need to conserve and protect the environment for future generations.
“The center's programs are available for school field trips, after-school programs and youth groups of all kinds.”
Both events will be held 10:30 a.m. to noon. One will be held April 3 at the Burlington Center, 496 McCanna Pkwy., while the other will be April 4 at the Center for Sustainable Living, 3530-30th Ave., Kenosha. While the programs are free, reservations are required by contacting Gray at (262) 564-2196.
