The BIG GREEN BUS returns!

posted Monday March 29, 2010

What do you do with a tank of used vegetable oil? You fuel up a bus and hit the road, of course!

Twelve students from Dartmouth College are touring the U.S. aboard the Big Green Bus, a renovated charter bus adapted to use vegetable oil as its fuel. They eat, sleep and live on the bus, traveling across the country to illustrate how alternative fuels can be used.

On Tuesday, July 6, 2010, they'll visit Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. Come to Morehead any time between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to meet the Big Green Bus crew, tour the bus, see demonstrations and informal presentations and learn more about this amazing road trip. It's a free activity, and children will enjoy it as much as adults.
