Liquefaction Live! activity part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
In this activity, students are provided with equipment and instructions for creating a simulation of liquefaction. The activity is great for students because it first asks them to reflect of what they know about liquefaction and make predictions for two different conditions, then lets them test their predictions. It also allows them to "destroy" a "building", which they seem to love.


Physical Geology part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Courses
This course introduces students to rocks and minerals, geologic time, global tectonics and other earth processes. Field simulations and exercises provide students with the framework for rock and mineral identification, mapping, model interpretations, and process visualization.
