The Problem

Our 5th-grade STEM Club at BGE wants to create a solution to the flooding problem on our campus after it rains. We want to collect that rain water and use it in our school garden. We know the cause of the problem, and now we are imagining and planning our solutions.

Our Plan

We want to connect the rain gutters, which drain right on top of the concrete, to rain barrels on wheels. We also want to make a large funnel from an old pop-up tent to catch rain water that forms a lake area on our playground after it rains.
