TeenTech Build Your Future Live: Natural Disasters and Resilience
May 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm BST
This TeenTech Build Your Future Live session on Natural Disasters and Resilience will consider how infrastructure design responds to natural hazards including earthquakes, flooding and fire. How can we prepare for natural disasters and environmental changes? How do we future-proof bridges, tunnels and buildings that have been around for hundreds of years?
If the timings don’t work for your school, or if you can’t join the sessions live, don’t worry! All sessions will be available for playback during the programme and you can even send us questions beforehand for our experts to answer.
