Updated: Aug 20, 2021
Sign Up (https://forms.gle/5bzFhqN35hezthVf8) Want to design for sea-level rise?
HelloMaker, in partnership with The Water Resilience Program, is eager to involve youth (that’s you!) to share your ideas in designing ports that are resistant to sea level rise and that are equitable community spaces. HelloMaker (https://hellomaker.org/) is a youth-led organization that was started by LWHS students. The organization encourages the exploration of design thinking and STEAM concepts through hands-on learning. Now we encourage you to design for your community.
What is the Water Resilience Program (https://www.sfportresilience.com/)?
The Water Resilience Program (WRP) is part of the SF Port’s efforts to ensure the waterfront is resilient in the face of earthquakes, flooding, sea-level rise due to climate change, and more.
How: This will happen virtually on zoom Between August to September 2021
What: - We will have a 1h meeting after August 27 for team building and to provide more information about the project - After we will have 2-3 weekly meetings to design for a specific part of the SF port - Finally, in September we will present our ideas to the Port - In the end, we can possibly continue to work with the SF port to get our design implemented (or having a discussion with the architectures and engineers)
Requirements: Ages between 12-18 Enthusiasm Willingness to engage and attend meetings
