Fun Green Gadget of the Month
Science Museum Solar Airship
This cross between a balloon and kite
effectively demonstrates the energy provided to us every day by the sun. The
structure is an 8 meter black plastic tube filled with air. The plastic is
composed of a special heat absorbing plastic which heats the air inside creating
lift even on a cloudy day. Attached to the airship is a 50 meter line which
helps you play with it as a kite. The solar airship is available from Amazon
for around ten British pounds.
Earth Day is April 22nd!
For over 40 years Earth Day has been celebrating the birth
of the modern environmental movement. Each April 22nd people around
the world perform acts towards bettering the environment and raise awareness
about modern society’s effect on the natural world. We encourage CIS students
and families to get involved in Earth Day this year. You can find out about
events around the world and individual acts of green you can do yourself at http://www.earthday.org/
