Announcement

You might have heard the news about Microsoft re-developing their silicon valley campus, which means that this facility would not be available to us.

Our goal is to reach as many kids as possible, and continue to be part of the solution to our environmental problems. We are unable to offer the next Green Kids Conference at this time.

We are focusing on our Green Star School Awards Program, in order to reach the kids directly at schools. Through the Green Star School Awards program, we will also be able to connect our partner resources directly with the schools.

" Encouraging our next generation to responsibly innovate "

Innovation and Environmental Sustainability should not be considered separately. Most of the issues we are seeing today with us not knowing how to use our raw materials and how to dispose of an item properly- like plastics, are because when people created products they did not consider these things. But now we know from our mistakes and from the issues we are currently facing today, that the right way is for us to think about environmental sustainability from the beginning of creating any product or solution.

" Environmental etiquette is the new norm for innovation "

Purpose of Jr. Scientists and Innovators section: To encourage kids to focus on science and innovation, and emphasize that environmental sustainability must be in the heart of everything we do.
