Making Sustainable Business Decisions In Four Different Industries and Their Effect on People (Social), Planet (Environment), and Profit (Economics) part of Activities
The student will gain a better understanding of "Global Warming" and the "Triple Bottom Line" by viewing the first two videos. Further the CEO2 game will introduce many new ideas/options that specific industries have to select from in achieving their desired corporate/company goals.
Using Lab Measurements to Determine the Feasibility of a Photovoltaic Panel part of Integrate:Workshops:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Activities
Tom Termes, Black Hills State University
Using Lab Measurements to determine the power output of a solar module and the economic feasibility of photovoltaic panels
Using Real World Data to Study Soil Foundation Structure Interaction part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Thalia Anagnos, San Jose State University
Soil-Foundation-Structure-Interaction (SFSI) is an important consideration when studying the impact of earthquakes on structures. A video and an online module introduce students to some basics concepts of SFSI.
Runoff Generation from Varying Land Surfaces part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Freddi-Jo Bruschke, California State University-Fullerton
Experimental lab activity and lesson exploring runoff generation from different types of land surfaces.
Physical model of the failure of an unreinforced structure during an earthquake part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Vince Cronin, Baylor University
This activity allows students to explore one of the principal reasons why so many people are injured or killed during an earthquake. Through the failure of a small model building on a simple shake table and comparison with photographs of actual buildings destroyed in earthquakes, students pursue an understanding of how to prevent these disasters through better building practices.
Evaluating Reuse Opportunities for Recovered Building Materials part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
John Duggan, Wentworth Institute of Technology
Students investigate opportunities to reuse recycled building materials as a substitute for the use of virgin materials through comparative life cycle assessment and consider regulatory acceptance and market feasibility issues.
Examining your Earthquake Hazard part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Eric Baer, Highline Community College
An exercise for helping students determine and understand their seismic hazard.
Air and Water Quality Optimization Related to Open Pit Mining part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Mark Koopman, University of Utah
The module is not sufficiently developed to be summarized.
How to Create a Well Log for Use in Geothermal Bore Field Design part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Kevin Amende, Montana State University-Bozeman
This activity is intended to provide a foundation in soil classification and well log creation for mechanical engineers who would like to design geothermal bore fields. Having an understanding of geoscience allows mechanical engineers to make educated decisions when trying to associate soil thermal properties for these designs.
Learning to integrate geophysics into engineering projects using a comprehensive set of interactive, online, scenario-based resources part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Francis Jones, University of British Columbia
This online activity is a four part interactive learning scenario involving application of geophysics in a groundwater contamination and site characterization setting. Learning objectives focus on decision making about designing, interpreting and contributing the geophysical components for a complex geologic / geotechnical project.
