EVENT: Wed., Nov. 5---SED Pedalathon for the Earth Highlights Wasting Energy

School of Education hosts a pedalathon for the Earth today, Nov. 5 from 8am-8pm

"Visitors are welcome to stop by to pedal on a stationary bicycle attached to a battery. The pedaling will transform human kinetic energy into chemical energy, which will then power a laptop and a stereo system and heat up free apple cider. SED hopes that participants’ efforts to create energy will make them think twice about wasting energy in the future.

The event will include conversations about sustainability ideas, plans, and actions, as well as a photo of the volunteer on the bike. The pedalathon is a collaboration between SED and the College of Arts and Sciences geography and environment department.

The pedalathon for the Earth will take place today, Wednesday, November 5, in the SED lobby, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, contact Douglas Zook, an SED associate professor."----BU Today
