Earth Day

In celebration of Earth Day 2013, a festival took place on the grounds of the ScienceWorks Museum today.  These pictures don't give a complete picture of the event since each of these features someone selling a product.  Most vendors were more modest in their scale and intentions.

Robert LaPorte of Econest describes the process of combining clay, straw and timber as a building material with a demonstration model.  Kids were invited to participate in stuffing the clay/straw mixture in the model walls.

Andy Stockwell, a Production Electrical Engineer with Brammo, a local motorcycle manufacturer, shows off one of the latest models.  The motorcycles are run entirely by electric motors.
