Summer SAVY 2016 (Session 2, Day 3) – Engineering Policy and Urban Design

Posted by on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 in Grade 5, Grade 6, SAVY.

The day started with a case study of Mexico City’s sewage infrastructure problems.  Ask your child about it.  We have finally learned enough to be able to think critically about urban design. Today’s challenge was to design a city in such a way that minimizes dirt and nutrient pollution and is still able to grow.  Our campers developed some prevention and remediation ideas that will keep the waters around their cities clean.  We continued our research into stakeholders’ perspectives, and hope to hold our debate tomorrow.
