The Effects of Pollution on a Watershed

The Effects of Pollution on a Watershed New

In this three-workshop residency, students use an imaginary piece of lakefront land in Northeast Ohio and an imaginary budget of $3,000,000 to build whatever they like (mansion, farm, amusement park, etc.). Students build a 3D sculptural model of their developed lakeshore, then reflect on their choices by thinking about the types of pollution that may occur as a result of what they chose to “build.” After adding pollutants to the sculpture, they create a “thunderstorm” and observe the effect of pollutants on the watershed in their model.
