Low Impact Development
The workshop titled “Low Impact Development” will use problem-based learning activities to integrate mathematics, design, and critical thinking skills. Participants will have the opportunity to present their designs and collaborate on ways in which these activities can be modified to meet the needs of their students. Participants will use the rational formula to calculate the peak runoff flow from various areas of a community. Participants will also gain a better understanding of LID strategies; such as vegetated roofs, previous pavement, and rain gardens; and how they can be used to reduce storm water runoff.
