Attention math geeks and science nerds: your parents need your help to save energy AND money. Come to our DIY Science program and learn how to measure energy used in your home. You can then use these calculations to see where you can make some changes to save money AND help save the earth. You’ll be able to borrow a home energy kit for two weeks to do your own experiments at home. Recommended for ages 10 and up (unless you’re a MATH GENIUS.) Please bring your adult with you. You can register by calling 827-6960. Presented for free by Project Green Team in conjunction with JEA and the St. Johns County Public Library System.
