Earth Day Event
SciTech Kids is offering an in-person Seed Bomb Making event in honor of the more than 2,000 unclaimed COVID-19 victims that are buried in mass graves at Hart Island. Children and their families will create seed bombs that grow into wildflowers or vegetables they can take home and plant in their community. The goal is to plant 2,300 seed bombs with the names of COVID-19 victims on a 3D printed plant stick. Planting will not only beautify the earth but also provide a source of nectar to butterflies and bees. This free event will be held on Thursday, April 22, from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm and Saturday, April 24, from 10 am to 4 pm at SciTech Kids, 215 East 81st Street, New York, NY 10028.
This free event is open to children and their families. Each family will be seated at their own table in our 2,000 sq. ft. facility to ensure in social distancing. Participants will also use Clyraguard, a protection spray, which inactivates the coronavirus on your mask and hands for up to 8 hours.
