The Magic Tower Science Career Orientation Center and Museum at the E szterházy Ká roly University Eger has been committed s ince its foundation to promote lif elong learning, and establish , in general , an atypical, informal , and non - formal science educational culture in Nor thern Hungary. One of the target areas of the Tower are the current environmental issues faced by the humanity. In the recent years, the Tower has launched s everal self - paced and inquiry - based science programs that intended to raise motivation towards envi ronmental sciences, and to create responsible individuals capable to identify environmental issues, engage in problem solving, and take efficient action. These programs were aimed at audiences of different age and education level, ranging from preschool ch il dren, through secondary school students , to parents and non - specialized researchers. In the present communication, we summarize some of these activities, along with their achievements.
