Water is all around us, and has a powerful effect on our planet. Sometimes that effect can be sudden (hurricanes, floods, mudslides, blizzards), and sometimes it can be gradual (erosion, glaciers, river formation). We’ll explore erosion and how water has the ability to shape the land and structures around it. Observe the effects of an overflowing river, and then design a solution to prevent flooding.
