Rethink and respond to climate change with these hands-on activities in Design Lab.

  • Emergency Structures – Climate change is leading to more frequent extreme weather events. Engineer a structure using dowels and rubber bands that can fit you and your family and can keep you safe through a storm.
  • Urban Planning in Empty Spaces with CUSP – Climate change is expected to bring hotter summers and more severe rainfall events to New York City. Act as an urban planner to redesign a vacant lot while considering different solution strategies.

The Climate & Urban Systems Partnership (CUSP) is a group of organizations and individuals dedicated to climate change education through local and relevant solutions.
