Be a Part of the Ice Cream Expedition

It’s summer time here in the northern climes, and that means kids are out of school. The streets and parks are filled with overheated, under-educated masses of little folk lolling about looking for something to do.

It is a situation not to be taken lightly.

Thankfully, three NG Young Explorers Grantees think they have a solution: inspire the kids to explore nature, convince them to help conserve it, and (to address the heat part of the equation) give them ice cream.

This video explains the whole thing:

There is of course the added hope that by inspiring the young generation to be good stewards of nature, it could help minimize the chance that by 2025 Earth will be too hot for ice cream to even exist.*
