Eco Experience Kids Area at the Minnesota State Fair
Since 2006, the Center for Global Environmental Education (CGEE) has designed and coordinated the Kids Area in the Eco Experience building at the Minnesota State Fair. The area provides a place where kids of all ages can come to learn and play.
Between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., CGEE's ipad app, the Storm Drain Goalie, will be debuted. Kids and adults alike can:
Kids can enjoy other activities in the Kids Area throughout the day, as well.
In partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), CGEE helps provide another of its educational multimedia programs, “The Urban Water Cycle,” on a kiosk in the "Water" area of the Eco Experience building.
The Eco Experience is a project of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), and it provides information and hands-on demonstrations of sustainable products and practices to Minnesota State Fair visitors.
CGEE is one of the roughly 35 major partners in the building.
Come visit us! The Eco Experience building is in the northeast quadrant of the fair, near the 4-H building. Look for the giant windmill blade out front.
