Engage your class through a hands-on stormwater management presentation. This presentation will educate students about the natural water cycle and demonstrate how stormwater is managed in their City, Students will use our hands-on Raingers Stormwater House models, to see how green infrastructure absorbs stormwater, and compare this to traditional infrastructure at home. Students will take part in a neighbourhood walk to identify where stormwater is currently going in their school neighbourhood, notice any green infrastructure, and then imagine how they could modify their school neighbourhood to incorporate green infrastructure.
This presentation is designed for one class, and is two periods in duration. A portion of the presentation will take place in the classroom, and a portion will take place outdoors.
