Explore the world of light and energy with the Greater Sudbury Public Library and EarthCare Sudbury, during their March Break Mini Energy Festival. Everyone is invited to the Main Library at 74 Mackenzie St., on Tuesday, March 17 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Learn about photosynthesis, energy conservation, technology and renewable energy. The festival features demonstrations, crafts, information booths and the chance to win prizes. Participating organizations include the City of Greater Sudbury Museums, EarthCare Sudbury and the Greater Sudbury Public Library.  

Have fun with light and energy technology in the new Makerspace at the Main Library. Learn, share and create in this space filled with technologies, tools, and toys, from wrenches and screwdrivers, to 3D printers and sewing machines. Do you want to build a Lego windmill? Would you like to build a prototype of a new light-technology invention? How about creating a solar robot to help you make your bed? Your imagination is the limit in the Makerspace!

EarthCare Sudbury has dedicated the year 2015 to Light and Energy to coincide with The United Nations’ declaration of 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light technology. Please visit for updates and activities on the International Year of Light and Light Technology.
