About the Event
Participants are introduced to the concept of urban heat islands and investigate temperatures of different surfaces when exposed to heat/light with infrared thermometers. Combined with hands-on experiments that investigate how plants help cool the hearth and engineering design challenges to address the problem of Urban Heat Island, participants will gain an understanding of why urban areas tend to be hotter than rural, more natural areas.
