Premiere of our new STEM Careers Video Series  

Thursday, June 12 from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM

at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum, Philadelphia, PA.  

 

Please join the EcoExpress team for the premiere of our new video series focused on S.T.E.M. related Careers! These fun, kid-friendly videos feature Philly public school students learning about some of the surprising job opportunities that draw on the science, technology, engineering, and math that we're all exposed to in school. Who knew that you can get a scholarship in competitive fishing? Or that the perfect background for a local mystery writer is her engineering degree?

 

Refreshments, generously provided by the Friends of John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge, will be served after the screening. 

 

Funding for the films generously provided by GSK, Dow Chemical and the Clif Bar Family Foundation.

Anita's Corner: Bermuda Roof 
Bermuda Roof
by Anita Brook Dupree

Anita recently traveled to Bermuda and has been sharing her experiences in her blog.

 
Bermuda is a tiny island nation that lies 640 miles east of North Carolina. When you are in Bermuda you notice its beauty and charm with every house painted a pastel color and roofs a bright white. The pretty and tidy white roofs serve an aesthetic purpose and a practice purpose as well: a way to collect rainwater. There are no rivers or sources of fresh water in Bermuda. All water must be captured off the terraced roofs and directed into storage takes. By law, every house in Bermuda must capture at least 80% of the rainwater that falls on it.
