Rising Tides

Test your skills at designing for the effects of sea-level rise!

Warming oceans and melting landlocked ice caused by global climate change may result in rising sea levels. This rise in sea level combined with increased intensity and frequency of storms will produce storm surges that flood subways, highways and homes. In this activity, visitors design and test adaptations to prepare for flooding caused by sea level rise.
