How can cities look towards a more sustainable future? That question will be explored in this class, which will look at the design of cities and their environmental impacts. Topics of discussion may include engineering and design, case studies of current trends in urban planning, and legislation and advocacy efforts toward greener urban planning. While this class will focus on STEM topics like engineering and technology, it will also incorporate art and design, social science like history and government, and more. Students will have ample input to share their topic ideas and will learn how they can contribute to sustainable cities now and in the future.
Students will be expected to complete approximately one hour of homework outside of class, primarily reading and watching exploratory videos, and will be provided with additional enrichment activities to extend the learning if desired.
