Steam power has been around for a long time! But it wasn't until the middle of the last century that man began tapping into the heat deep into the Earth to create steam to produce electricity on a large scale . We wanted to learn more about this renewable and sustainable source for power. So Jaden visited the largest geothermal power facility in the world to get the inside scoop!

Then high school students go wading into ocean tide pools at low tide. They're part of NatureBridge's TEEM program (Teen Environmental Education Mentorship). They're looking for sea creatures to replenish the marine organisms in their educational lab. Athenna gets her feet wet following along to learn more.

Finally, teens from Land-Based Learning's SLEWS Program brave the cold winds to work on restoring a riparian habitat. They're planting trees & shrubs with the goal of creating a natural habitat for wildlife, raptors and pollinators. Vincent goes along to learn more and lend a hand!
