‘Green Power’ hero launches clean energy camp

Green Power Heroes (Special to Hawaii 24/7)


Green Power Girl and the Green Power Heroes in partnership with Friends of NELHA is presenting the Clean Energy Adventure Camp at the Hawaii Gateway Energy Center at NELHA in July and August.

Environmental educator Susan Cox (aka Green Power Girl) developed the Green Power Hero School Energy Awareness Program that has been taught in hundreds of schools to over 150,000 students in three states.

The Green Power Heroes are cartoon characters with environmental back stories and lessons to teach. Cox uses the stories and myths of the Green Power Hero characters to tell the story of climate change and environmental integrity.

Green Power Girl and the Green Power Heroes will guide students on an exploration with local scientists into the future of clean energy at the Natural Energy Lab of Hawaii (NELHA). Each day of the Clean Energy Adventure Camp will focus on a different source of green power.

Activities include: solar energy and solar cooking with Green Power Girl; excursions to NELHA aquaculture tenants including abalone, deep sea water and spirulina farms with the Blue Revolution Man; tide pools walks and ocean energy activities with Dr. Marina Del Ray; wind turbine and geothermal field trips; and chocolate making at a local cacao farm. Students will develop a future green city model and will create their own Green Power Hero champion in stories, costumes, and plays.

The Clean Energy Adventure Camp is for children ages 9 – 13 and offers two sessions July 18-29 and Aug. 1-12, 2011. Participants can sign up for the entire two week session or at a daily or weekly rate for a part of the session.
