News Brief: Tour of TERC-Designed Exhibits for Capuano Early Childhood Center

April 6, 2010



CAMBRIDGE, MA–In February, a team of TERC staff visited the Michael E. Capuano Early Childhood Center in Somerville, Massachusetts to tape a virtual tour of the child-friendly energy conservation exhibits installed at the school. The TERC-designed exhibits kinesthetically show how various recycled materials (including aluminum cans, glass bottles, recycled car tires) were used in the construction of the school, and how the use of natural light, energy-friendly insulation, and wind turbines is harnessed in the school's design.

The video is now posted online through the Somerville Public Schools' video feed. Please visit it online at:
