Celebrate Earth Day for an entire month at Discovery Cube LA!
We are inviting Southern California families to take the Eco Challenge with us between March 25 and April 23, 2017 with exciting weekend programming, a sustainable art competition, and a huge Earth Day celebration with LA Sanitation at Exposition Park.
While visitors to Discovery Cube get year-round exposure to environmental stewardship through eco-friendly exhibits such as the Discovery Market, Race-to-Recycle, Planetary Research Station, and Inspector Training Course, Earth Month at the Cube kicks off with a Sustainable Art Competition beginning March 26th!
SUSTAINABLE ART COMPETITION
Discovery Cube invites guests to make an environmental impact by cleaning up an area (the park, their backyard, their neighborhood, the Church parking lot, the school playground… ) and use the trash from that (or other things) to create an art piece or other creative creation!
Creations can be dropped off between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. daily from March 25 – April 16.
- Best by an Organization / Group
- Most Impactful
- Best Youth
- Most Motivational Story (grand prize eligible)*
*Entries in the “Most Motivational Story” category are eligible for the grand prize – a family four pack to Disneyland!
An entry in any category will receive four (4) complimentary Discovery Cube admission passes to return to the visit the Cube by May 31, 2017.
EARTH MONTH ACTIVITIES
(Weekends Only – March 25 through April 23)
Eco Friendly Game Show:
Learn how to recycle the right way and how much waste we create in Los Angeles. This show has lots of audience participation where each guest has 60 seconds to complete a task!
Paper Beads tabletop:
Guests will use old flyers and newspapers to learn how to make colorful beads out of recycled paper, instead of throwing it away. Make an eco-friendly fashion statement!
Eco Maker Space:
What can you make out of a paper cup? Guests will have the opportunity to be creative and create a practical / useful creation out of an ordinary cup. Reuse and rethink!
Learn about our Planet at the Planetary Research Station.
Engage with our planet scientist about what kinds of waste are hurting the planet. Did you know there are many floating “landfills?” How are they hurting the marine environment and what can we do?
