STEM Camp: Designing Passive Trash Collection System for Mulberry Creek
June 12, 2023 @ 8:30 am - June 16, 2023 @ 4:00 pm
In this STEM camp, students will learn about the environmental impact of trash on our local waterways. They will learn the need for effective trash collection systems. The human population growth has resulted in increased trash generation, which often ends up in our local water bodies, posing a threat to wildlife and nature.
During this STEM Camp, students will design and build a passive trash collection system for Mulberry Creek, a nearby waterway. They will be introduced to the basics of passive collection system design, including understanding the flow and direction of the water current and the most effective placement of the collection system.
The course will emphasize hands-on learning. They will use a range of materials to construct their passive trash collection system. In addition, students will learn about the importance of sustainability and the impact of human actions on the environment. The course will include discussions on the effects of littering and the benefits of recycling.
Finally, students will have gained a deeper understanding of the importance of protecting our waterways. Also, they will design and construct a passive trash collection system for Mulberry Creek, which will help keep the waterway clean and healthy for the local ecosystem.
