About the Event

In this Lab, participants practice the disciplines of STEM, Civics, Geography, and Common Core to explore green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) engineering solutions where students reinforce their understanding of the 8 Engineering Design Principles, applying “backwards design thinking” to develop GSI recommendations for a specific site in their community. Teachers are supported with an elegant new framework of ready-made lessons that includes entry points through infographics, video, text analysis, and a range of exciting local case studies that challenge and deepen student thinking. The culminating experience is a story map performance task that engages students in designing a set of well-informed GSI recommendations that would reduce the impact of polluted stormwater runoff at their selected community site. Teachers can mix and match selected entry points and lesson ideas to support a range of classroom applications. The Lab will be facilitated as a hybrid learning experience. Virtual learning in the morning will focus on content knowledge, lesson review, real-world resource curation, and PBL curriculum design skills. In-person learning in the afternoon will feature a field investigation of green stormwater infrastructure neighborhood solutions in West Seattle. Join us!
