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.

Empowering People to Deal with the Effects of Climate Change part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Activities
DIANE BERES, Ripon College
This classroom activity involves viewing and discussing very short videos demonstrating the effects of climate change on the lives of people in three different countries.

Cyber-Mediated Ethnography: The Next Best Thing to Being There part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Activities
Deborah Jackson, Earlham College
In this activity, students undertake a "cyber-mediated ethnography" project. Working in small groups, students use internet resources connected to the location they are studying, and involving variously positioned stakeholders. The product is a group report and presentation and, if resources allow, a website sharing their findings.

Environmental Justice Activity part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Activities
Herb Wang, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Addressing energy-related environmental injustice part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Activities
Karen Berger, University of Rochester
Student teams will identify a locally relevant example of energy-related environmental injustice and propose solutions for a potential decision-maker within the time frame of a single lecture period.

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.

Numerical Algebraic Modeling of Earth's Atmosphere using MSExcel part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Mookesh Dhanasar
This activity was designed to incorporate Mathematical Modeling, Algorithm Development, Scientific Programming, Data Visualization and Analysis in a High School STEM activity to model the Earth's Atmospheric Model.

Mohr Circles part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Dan Morgan, Vanderbilt University
This lab will give students practice plotting Mohr circles, interpreting experimental data for creating new fractures and pre-existing cracks, and how pore-pressure and earthquakes affect materials.
