Budding scientists not only learn about the hows and the whys of the natural world on our planet, but they also learn how to be earth-friendly in an effort to preserve it. Recycling and reusing, of course, are two basic ways that people of all ages can help to save our planet. Fostering an appreciation for plant and animal life, too, is important in guiding children toward making responsible, earth-friendly choices.
