Science on the Green
We are not offering Science on the Green in 2013 or in the foreseeable future because of our move to new offices in Montpelier, and the disruption the flooding of Waterbury caused resulting in numerous office moves for our event planners. Thank you so much for your past participation in this fun hands-on science event. We hope to plan another SotG someday at our new location. In the meantime please check out some of our other fun events and interesting programs below.

Take a look at past SOTG events!
in the fall of 2006 the doors were open for a day of Environmental
Exploration at the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources in Waterbury. School classrooms
all over Vermont traveled to Waterbury for a long half-day exploration
of science, the environment, and how all the small things we do, taken
together, make a BIG difference. That first year we hosted over 450 teachers
and students at the Waterbury Complex in 22 different workshops and
fieldtrips covering a broad spectrum of environmental issues providing
hands-on opportunities to learn about environmental protection efforts.
On our Second Annual SOTG day,
in September 2007, we hosted over 650 teachers and
students! In 2008 there were over 800 students
from more than 50 classes at over 20 participating schools who
attended two SOTG events. The 2009 event hosted over
700 students, as did the 2010 day. We hope to continue sharing our love of our surroundings
with young people in years to come.

second year, there was an additional Science on the Green date and event
in southern Vermont. Science at the Hatchery took
