    Making Sustainable Business Decisions In Four Different Industries and Their Effect on People (Social), Planet (Environment), and Profit (Economics) part of Activities
    Walt White
    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.

    Water Neutrality Design Charette part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
    Steven Burian, University of Utah
    An exercise to design a water management plan for the University of Utah to achieve water neutrality. Students are expected to work with their disciplinary tools to identify infrastructure needs, environmental impacts, cost, social impacts, and more.

    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.

    Finding Soil Material for a Construction Project part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
    Tej Gautam, Marietta College
    For this activity, students will prepare soil maps and data tables. Using 'Web Soil Survey (WSS)', a small area around Marietta City will be chosen and possible sites for acquiring soil as a construction material for an engineering project will be determined.

    Assessing Water Resource Demand in New York City part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
    Kyle Monahan, Clarkson University
    An exercise assessing the water demand of New York City and population dynamics underlying that demand is provided. Visualization of first order water resource estimates using precipitation data and a known water storage volume are used to draw conclusions about drought risk and the sustainability of NYC water supplies.
