Environmentalist superhero Captain Planet visits kids at Discovery Center

News

SPRINGFIELD – With so many shows and games for kids to play it can be hard to get them excited about things like the outdoors.  But today, the Discovery Center brought a superhero in to help bring shows and excitement about the environment together.

Captain Planet from the well-known show made a visit to the Discovery Center today to interact with kids and teach a little about the environment. 

“Trying to get kids about environmental issues,” Rob Blevins, executive director of Discovery Center said.  “Not with a spin on it per se but just the science. What is the environment? How does it work? How do we interact with the environment as humans?”

Also coming up at the Discovery Center, the Princesses of 417 Land will be visiting soon to teach kids hands-on science lessons.
