Using Sensory Data to Map Enviromental Experiences part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Activities
Lisa Phillips, Illinois State University

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.

Mapping Environmental Justice: The Geography of Population and Pollution part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Activities
Christopher Cusack, Keene State College
Hands-on computer mapping activity analyzing location of toxic release facilities and diversity of population.

Introducing students to a critical realist approach to environmental justice in the U.S. part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Activities
Anna Versluis, Gustavus Adolphus College
This activity describes how students in a combined geography and environmental studies undergraduate course are introduced to the concept of environmental justice from a critical realist perspective. Students use the E.P.A.'s environmental justice mapping tool, EJView, and a number of scholarly texts to propose their own research on a U.S. environmental justice case study.

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.

Hyporheic Board Game part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Susa Stonedahl, Saint Ambrose University
The Hyporheic Game is an ideal board game for introductory geoscience, environmental, or chemistry courses. This game introduces students to concepts of hyporheic exchange and the nitrogen cycle.

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.
