Engineering Design Challenge

In this lab experience, students are challenged to design a roof that absorbs less of the Sun’s energy, reducing air temperature in a city. Students determine through testing that a green roof reduces internal temperature change in a building compared to a control. Green roofs are another method to combat the urban heat island effect.
