“Can Charleston Engineer Our Way Out of Flooding?” with Jared Bramblett, Senior Civil Engineer & Stormwater Project Leader AND “Kinetic Mobiles” with local artist Marielena Martinez.

It’s a great day in South Carolina…except for those days when flooded streets back up traffic, damage houses and limit access to hospitals and emergency response vehicles. With our surrounding marshes and shorelines expected to be 17 more inches underwater by 2050 — six more inches in just the next 13 years – how are we going to adapt? Just how much water can our engineers hold back or build around? Jared Bramblett is an engineer specializing in hydrology and hydraulics and has over 12 years of experience working with public and private sector clients throughout the southeast. Learn about stormwater master plans, watershed assessments, flood mitigation, large-scale drainage improvements, green infrastructure design & implementation, and coastal resilience projects! All while enjoying food and drinks and his striking photography to help illustrate. And Marielena will introduce us to Calder inspired kinetic mobiles. Like water management, the art to mobile making also depends on physics. Put on your engineering hats to design your own mobiles to take home.
