Student Exhibits at EXPO Earthx2019
EarthX offers opportunities for young students to be a part of creating a wonderful opportunity to exhibit their ideas and innovations and interact with other like minded community members. They can explore green careers and college programs and earn service learning hours while helping to create awareness for sustainability and conservation of our planet’s resources.
Student Field Trips
Attention Parents, Teachers and School Administrators:
Bring your class or the entire school for a field trip to EXPO-EarthX2019. It is a learning environment that will get them excited about protecting the earth and teach them hundreds of ways they can make it a part of their lives.
- Virtual Reality
- Film Screenings
- Tree Climbing
- Scuba Diving
- Robotics & Technology
- Educational Workshops
- And much more!
Teachers, here’s an opportunity to get yourself and your students engaged and involved in Earthx2019 and earn volunteer and community service hours while learning about the latest eco-‐friendly initiatives, discoveries, research, innovations, policies, and practices reshaping our world.
This year EarthX expects to break all previous attendance records and we need volunteers to work with programs and activities appealing to a wide range of knowledge levels and interests – from providing logistics support at events to enlightening children on how best to make a positive difference in the world.
Take the EarthX pledge to Strike Out Straws
Over 500 million plastic straws are used every day in the U.S. Once they are discarded, single-use plastic straws, which are made from petroleum, require over 200 years to break down, which effectively adds to plastic debris in our landfills and the plastic already covering one third of the world’s oceans.
Add your name to our list of environmentally conscious businesses and Earthlings who are determined to remove single-use plastics from the environment.
