The Da Vinci Science Center will close out its Year of Innovation at the end of the summer and will begin its Year of the Planet theme in the fall.

So, Thursday, we took a look at some innovations in our area that help protect our planet, and we also celebrated the 5-year anniversary of our Up & Atom Science segments.

WFMZ's Eve Tannery welcomed Da Vinci Science Center Chief Scientist and Senior Director Doctor David Smith and Myles Powell, a New Technologies Engineer from UGI Utilities to 69 News at Sunrise.
