MOSI to Display Berkeley Preparatory School’s Recycled Globe
Beginning May 28, through 2010, MOSI will display Berkeley Preparatory Schools Recycled Globe. The globe is composed of 8,000 eight-ounce recycled water bottles, a recycled aluminum frame and over 700 square feet of recycled chicken wire. The creation of the globe took Berkeley Preparatory parents and alumni six weeks and over 300 hours to finish; they made the globe into four parts and then assembled it into a sphere. FREE with MOSI admission.
The globe is 11 feet in diameter and weighs about 300 pounds. The globe was created for a fundraiser entitled “Blue Earth,” to illustrate environmentally friendly ways to make a positive difference in the world.
MOSI, Museum of Science & Industry is located at 4801 East Fowler Avenue, Tampa.
