Toxic stormwater is degrading the water quality of Puget Sound and surrounding waterways. What can be done to engineer solutions related to stormwater? How does climate change exacerbate this issue and what can students do about it?
Join Washington Green Schools and Puget Sound ESD to explore current research and make connections to local climate-related phenomena while engaging the Next Generation Science Standards and the Science and Engineering Practices.
