Sustainable Cities: Tween/Teen Family Science Night

May 23 @ 5:30 pm

Free

Have you ever thought about how we use the landscape to create cities and towns? Much of our urban planning was done to provide as much comfort and opportunities for the humans that live there without regard for natural resources and wildlife. But modern urban design is changing that mindset.

In this special family science program we invite tweens/teens and their grownups to join us for a hands on, creative study of urban design. We will spend some time contemplating “wants” vs “needs” of human survival, explore some of the unintentional effects of city living on wildlife, and then groups will work together using recycled materials to design their own sustainable city model.

This program is designed for middle school/high school aged students AND THEIR ADULTS to learn and work together to create a city concept. Due to the higher level concepts we will cover in this land use program, it is not appropriate for young learners, even with their adult caretaker.  Please do not sign up your elementary aged student, even if they are a younger sibling. This is a middle school and up program only.
