Product Description
Students will understand the importance of water conservation and of the saying, “Every Drop Counts”, as they build a model city to capture water, not shed water, and will learn the difference between an aqua duct and an aquifer. Students will learn that when a city is built to harness water, store and reuse it, the architecture and design of that city will need to change. Students will learn the crucial importance of designing a waterproof city vs. a water capturing city, or rather, a “sponge city”.
To educate students on the importance of water and its pathways within an urban landscape, as well as to emphasize the importance of architectural design within the scope and measure of engineering future cities and their water capturing potential. Special focus will be paid to the capture and harnessing potential of water within a model city and its structures, as well as to the transport and storage capacities of water within city limits, and finally, design will extend to creative recycling technologies designed by the students.
