This is so pretty and a great idea. A FREE decorative and informative poster highlighting various forms of renewable energy.

Here is a great science craft to teach kids about alternative energy: a solar oven! Harnessing the power of the sun is cool and teaches us about caring for our environment and using renewable resources. Best of all, kids can make a snack they love, nachos, using the solar oven they made using this DIY.  The directions are remarkably easy and you might already own all of the materials needed. It's a wonderful summer activity to do with your own kids, or in a community or classroom setting.
