    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.

    Simulating Mineral Industry Drilling and Processing Lab part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
    Joel Aquino, Gainesville State College
    Students simulate two processes applied by the mineral industry - drilling and mineral processing. In the drilling activity, students create a 3D model of a hidden object inside a shoebox by using bamboo skewers as their drilling machines. The second activity on mineral processing challenges the students to design and implement a flowchart on how to separate the individual components of a water-oil laden mineral mixture.

    Seismic Evaluation of Buildings part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching about Risk and Resilience:Activities
    Dr.G.P.Ganapathy, VIT University, Vellore 632014, India
    Check list to retrofitting of buildings based on Rapid Seimic evaluation of the buildings
