Green Revolution

The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) is partnering with the Museum of Science and Industry to present Green Revolution, an innovative, temporary museum exhibit that provides kids and their families with easy lifestyle changes they can make to be more environmentally responsible. The exhibition content is organized around the major themes of Energy, Carbon Footprint, Composting and Gardening, Hybrid House, and Waste and Recycling. Unlike most traveling exhibitions, Green Revolution isn't packed in a crate, and it doesn't travel by truck, so it has virtually no carbon footprint. Instead, participating museums receive all of the necessary design files and instructions digitally, allowing them to construct their very own home grown "eco-zibit" from re-used, recycled materials found within their local community.
