The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Campus Rainwater Challenge, a national student design competition, is focused on creating green infrastructure and building sustainable communities on college campuses and across America.  The first half of the course will include tutorial seminars on stormwater management, green infrastructure, and understanding the social, economic and ecological relationships among Georgia Tech, the Emerald Corridor along Proctor Creek, the Westside Alliance neighborhoods and the Chattahoochee River.  The second half will involve collaborative and interdisciplinary student teams, working with Architecture, City Planning and Environmental Engineering faculty, to design green infrastructure projects for the Georgia Tech Campus and submit them for the national design competition.
