The goal of the National Green Museum is to provide a home for the plan and achievements of every school, city and neighborhood in the USA to “go green” through exhibits.
As a Super Green Think Tank, the National Green Museum will help everyone share best practices, improve their plan, and have greater achievements for their community and schools. The exhibits serve as a Green Vision Board for the community.
The goal of the Environmental Science Fair is to encourage students to research the most scientifically demonstrated approaches to conserving water and energy, recycling, green transportation, insulation, solar roof and solar hot water energy, wind and geothermal energy, sustainability, and other environmental areas, which would benefit their school, neighborhood or city. As an option, students may add a second exhibit, which goes into details of how to apply at least one of these technologies to their school, neighborhood or city.
The goal of the Environmental Hall of Fame is to honor individuals, organizations and businesses that have top solutions to reduce global warming and energy costs, and increase energy independence and sustainability.
