Crazy Science!~Fight a Flood in the TeenZone

Image of waves

Flooding is a growing concern and innovative solutions to combat sea-level rise are needed.  In this hands-on activity, teens will break into groups and follow the engineering design process to build a solution to keep their plastic house from flooding. Then they will test their solution in a flooding simulator. Groups who don’t succeed on the first try will be able to learn from their observations and rework their design.  After teens are successful, they can take on harder challenges such as thinking about economic solutions.
