Sustainable Engineering at Home

Did you know that each of us tosses a car worth of trash every year! While clean drinking water is taken for granted in industrial economies, globally, 1 in 9 people lack access to it. Sustainable engineering deals with designing systems and processes that use our natural resources responsibly.

In this program, participants will explore sustainability at home as they design a sweet sustainable home for their client. The clients include the TechMex family, the McMassive family, the ScoutOut family and the Flower family. Clients have their unique lifestyle habits and are assigned at random. Children will get into “trash talk” and experience Garbology, engineering design of a warm home, rain barrels and critical thinking. Which design will win the Certificate of STEM Sustainable Housing?
