Undergraduate Distinction for Leadership in Humanitarian Engineering
Nina Guizzetti - Geological Engineering with an ECD minor
I am beyond proud to say I have minored in Humanitarian Engineering at Mines. Not only have I learned concepts and perspectives that are unique and vital to the success of engineering in the real world, but I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people along the way. I am incredibly excited to apply what I have learned in my minor to my future career. After graduation, I will be starting as geology intern for Hecla Greens Creek Mining Company, in Juneau, AK. As a geotechnical engineering major, I have never had the opportunity to apply pure geology in my career and am looking to fill that void during this internship! After this internship, I will begin a full-time position as a geotechnical engineer at Shannon and Wilson in Anchorage, Alaska. In addition to gaining practical experience, I am excited to work with native Alaskans communities on geotechnical projects, hopefully getting to apply some community engagement skills! Again, I am beyond grateful for everyone in Humanitarian Engineering and am even more grateful to have been a small part of it. I look forward to keeping in touch!

Lily Laursen – Chemical Engineering with an ECD minor
Hello! My name is Lily Laursen, and I am a graduating senior from Kirkland, Washington. I am seeking a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering with an Engineering for Community Development minor and Peace Corps Prep Certificate. HE has been one of the most wonderful additions to my education here at Mines. Every semester my HE courses provided a broadened perspective, applicable knowledge, and so much joy in learning. I became someone who looked at all my coursework differently than my peers and I believe this perspective will be impactful for my career and future. Following my graduation in the spring, I have joined the Peace Corps to teach chemistry, biology, and physics in Sierra Leone!

Emily Robinson – DE with Community Development focus area
Through HE I have had the opportunity to participate in research, student organizations, engaging classes, travel, and outreach programs. Most of all, I have found a community of people who share my interests, values, and passions. Participating in the HE program has been one of the most rewarding parts of my Mines career and I look forward to using my HE skills as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Madagascar post-graduation. 

Maddie Wiley – Mechanical Engineering with an LSR minor
As I am completing my LSR minor, I have found my greatest takeaways from these classes to be learning how to incorporate social and environmental responsibility into my engineering work, methods to meaningfully include stakeholders and community members from the very beginning of a project, and the importance of culturally and socially appropriate solutions. The professor relationships I have formed and grown in HE have also been key to helping me figure out what I want to do after graduation and encouraging me to follow my passion for HE. In the fall, I am excited to be joining the MSc in Sustainability Management and Innovation at the University of Westminster in London, and I couldn't be happier to be making this move to further my education to eventually work on roles like a Sustainability Consultant or CSR Manager after this program at an international level. 

Outstanding Graduate Student in Humanitarian Engineering and Science
Sofía Schlezak, for her thesis “Informal and Semi-Formal Electrical and Electronic Waste (E-Waste) Management: A Socio-Technical Study of Risks, Perceptions, Interventions, and Educational Opportunities.” You can learn more about Sofía's research in the previous issue of our newsletter.

Currently, I am working remotely as an Independent Contractor for the United Nations Institute of Training and Research (UNITAR) in their Chemicals and Waste Management Programme Unit. I coordinate projects that aim to support governments and other stakeholders to strengthen their institutional, technical, and legal infrastructure and capacities for the sound management of chemicals and waste. Later this year, I will be working in their office in Geneva, Switzerland. After graduation and before moving to Switzerland, I will come back to Argentina and will participate in lectures at three universities, as an invited speaker. I will also organize two workshops with the workers that were part of my research so we can discuss the results of my thesis. I will also participate (remotely) in the design of a workshop to be delivered at the International Conference on Engineering Education for Sustainable Development in June. It will introduce participants to novel ways to educate engineers in responsible and socially just community engagement that can produce sustainable community development (SCD). I am planning the publication of at least one paper in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health in 2023. Also, Jaime Styer and I are waiting for the acceptance of our manuscript "Inclusive Urban Mining: an Opportunity for Engineering Education" which was submitted to the journal Mining last February.

Maddie Urquhart, for her practicum developing a water resource management framework rooted in co-creation and collaboration between Indigenous communities and engineers. 
For my practicum I have been developing a framework rooted in co-creation and collaboration between Indigenous communities and engineers in the realm of water resource management. I am emphasizing a values-based approach to projects in this field that enable full autonomy and empowerment of Indigenous populations, while simultaneously highlighting an approach rooted in humility and empathy that can theoretically combat longstanding patterns of inequity and oppression. 

This summer I will be working as a Water Rights intern with Denver Water in the Water Resource Strategy Division to support project areas like water rights investigations and raw water modeling. I will also be taking part in an NSF-funded research project within the IRES program in Eldoret, Kenya, focusing on community-engaged engineering and the design of localized engineering education curricula. 
In this issue, you will learn about the current projects in the Engineering with Communities Design Studio that is part of the EDS Capstone Design program. These projects are sourced by Dr. Kleine in partnership with community engagement organizations. The students work on these projects for two semesters (or more!) and present their work with the rest of the students in the Capstone Design program at the Capstone Design Showcase each semester. These teams won several awards in the 2023 Spring Capstone Design Showcase! Take a look and learn about their amazing work. 
Dr. Marie Stettler Kleine |  Assistant Professor
Engineering, Design, & Society Department
Capstone Design: Engineering with Communities Design Studio (ECDS)
Academic Year 2022-2023

Bogotá, Colombia with NGO Diversa
Retos is a part of Diversa that interfaces between Colombian communities and university partners. They source projects from individuals in Colombia. These projects are completed through a process of co-creation with a university partner. Project facilitators are hired to manage the relationships between the project clients and university students. Their completed projects are available online, so if someone is having a similar problem, they can access the solutions.
  • Aqueduct Optimization
    Students are partnered with a Colombian-based NGO, Diversa and the town of Silvania. Currently, an aqueduct provides water to 130 homes in the town. There are challenges related to water pressure within the system. As a result, some houses receive too much or too little water pressure. The Mines students have been tasked with proposing engineering interventions to improve the water pressure challenges through a co-creation process with the project partners.
  • Wool Spinning Efficiency
    The Arhuaco people are an indigenous group in Colombia that currently lives on a reservation called Katansama in the northern region of the country. Wool spinning is an essential tradition practiced by the women of the community. Along with cultural significance, it provides women with the opportunity to earn income. Mines students are working on improving the efficiency and function of a wool spinning machine. They must balance the cultural requirements such as including certain parts available to these women and traditional engineering constraints such as cost and efficiency.
  • Human-powered Generator
    The project partners have unreliable access to electricity. They are interested in human-powered generation specifically because they would have control over their access to electricity to power lights and small appliances. The Mines students are designing a bicycle generator that converts the energy from biking into electricity. Additionally, the generator has the functionality to wash clothes with a drum that rotates on the back wheel of the bicycle. This team was recognized at the 2023 Spring Capstone Design Showcase as having the Best Human Systems project!
  • Fruits and Aromatic Dehydrator 
    The project is a continuation of a project from previous semesters although the team is working with a different partner. The dehydrator created by past teams did not meet many of the new partner’s needs such as being portable or reaching the correct temperature. The past design was only meant for dehydrating bee pollen. The new client would like the dehydrator to work for pollen, fruits, and yogurt. The current student team works with an agricultural market vendor to understand their needs and redesign the dehydrator. Significant changes have been made to meet size, temperature, and other functionality requirements requested by their new partner. 
Denver, Colorado, USA with partner Chatfield Farms
Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms is a working farm in Jefferson County, Colorado. They work with small-scale farmers throughout the Front Range in Colorado to disseminate best practices and support local farmers. Additionally, they host community events to showcase farming, flowers, and nature to local residents.
  • Compost Irrigation 
    The students are tasked with developing watering systems for two separate compost methods. Water is required to support the biological processes happening in the compost piles. The first method, windrow composting, requires piles to be turned using a skid steer. The second composting method is the bioreactor cylinders, which does not require turning. The students meet biweekly with partners at Chatfield Farms to utilize the students’ engineering skills and the farmers’ lived experience to design solutions through co-creation.
  • Irrigation Monitoring
    Chatfield Farms currently has no way of measuring how much water certain fields or crops use. Watering practices are based on expertise of the farmers, but a more standardized approach to watering could reduce water use on the farm. To accomplish the first part of this intervention, the team determined that the implementation of a flow meter was necessary. Next, the team worked to create several variations of an irrigation calculator that could be used to determine how much water different garden beds require to grow. The combination of these solutions attempts to measure exactly how much water the farm uses for their vegetable crops. This team tied for fourth place overall in the 2023 Spring Capstone Design Showcase and team member Sam Jannke won first place for his Broader Impact Essay, "The Environmental and Economic Impacts of Unsustainable Farming
  • Hail Protection
    Due to the volatile weather in Colorado, hailstorms can destroy crops. Damage to the crops prevents the farmers from generating income and wastes the resources they initially invested. Many existing hail protection systems are expensive and designed for large-scale systems. In partnership with Chatfield Farms, the Mines students are designing a low-cost, modular hail protection system that can be implemented at Chatfield Farms and other small-scale farms in the Front Range. 
  • No-Till Planter 
    Chatfield Farms is looking to expand their practice of no-till planting for vegetable crops. Using standard walk-behind planters in cover cropped ground has proven ineffective and there are no reasonable solutions for small to medium-sized farms. The overall purpose of the students’ project is to create a planter for use by the Chatfield Farms, as well as other small-scale and urban farm operations, that will allow for efficient planting of various seed types.

We are thrilled to present research from Dr. Beth Reddy and HES student Marísa Macías as two examples of active HE research at Mines. Dr. Reddy recently released an exciting book about the impacts and implications of the Mexican earthquake risk mitigation system and Marísa was recognized for her research (also with Dr. Reddy) on earthquake impact products. Read on for more!
¡Alerta! Engineering on Shaky Ground
Dr. Beth Reddy | Assistant Professor, Engineering, Design, & Society and Geophysics
On April 4, HES faculty Dr. Beth Reddy released her first book, ¡Alerta! Engineering on Shaky Ground. ¡Alerta! takes readers on a vivid journey into the world of Mexican earthquake risk mitigation, with critical insights for anthropologists and science and technology studies scholars, as well as specialists in the geosciences, engineering, and emergency management.

The Sistema de Alerta Sísmica Mexicano is the world's oldest public earthquake early warning system. Given the unpredictability of earthquakes, the technology was designed to give the people of Mexico City more than a minute to prepare before the next big quake hits. How does this kind of environmental monitoring technology get built in the first place? How does its life-saving promise align with reality? And who shapes modern risk mitigation? In ¡Alerta!, Elizabeth Reddy surveys this innovation to shed light on what it means to imagine a world where sirens could sound out an ¡alerta sísmica! at any moment—and what it would be like to live in such a world.

Humanitarian Engineering and Science student Marísa Macías wins 2023 GRADS poster session
Second-year HES student Marísa Macías won first place in the Theoretical and Social Sciences poster category at the 2023 Mines Graduate Research and Discovery Symposium (GRADS) for her research on earthquake impact products. Hosted each spring, GRADS is an event designed by graduate students to showcase graduate and undergraduate students doing cutting-edge research at Mines. Participants practice their presentation skills in a comfortable professional environment and receive real-time feedback from Mines faculty, Mines alums, and other professionals acting as judges. Read on for details about Marísa's research, followed by her winning poster!

Title: Designing Earthquake Scenario Exercises to Evaluate Actionable Earthquake Impact Products
Authors: Marísa Macías, Sabine Loos, Elizabeth Reddy 
Abstract: Natural hazards of all kinds often disproportionately impact underserved communities, and earthquakes are no different. To address these disproportionate impacts during the immediate response, underserved communities need and deserve emergency management efforts that are explicitly focused on equity. However, responders often do not have post-earthquake information that reveals disproportionate impacts. While preliminary research suggests that such tools may be useful, their functionality needs to be assessed.

In this study, we are learning about the needs of professional users of earthquake impact products through a user-centered, iterative design process. Initial focus groups with users allowed us to develop a mockup for a new impact product highlighting social vulnerability characteristics in a way that focuses on user needs through considering a current product, the U.S. Geological Survey’s PAGER (Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response). We are now developing earthquake scenario exercises to gain feedback on the mockup. Using historical earthquakes as our scenarios, we will present professional users with our mockup as the product inject in this specific earthquake disaster as it relates to equitable disaster response through a workshop-based tabletop exercise. Through qualitative analysis, we will then apply the results of the scenario exercise to our prototype as the next product iteration. We seek to explore what formatting might be most effective, how users might use the content, and how social vulnerability content influences their decision-making to support equitable considerations.

Alums! We want to recognize and celebrate YOU!
As part of our 20th Anniversary Celebration, we will share slides from HE program alums with information about your journeys after Mines.

Spring was off to an busy start for the HE Program and we are actively planning our fall 20th Anniversary Celebration! Over spring break, HE faculty Dr. Juan Lucena took undergraduate and graduate students to Bogota, Colombia. At home, the Engineering, Design, and Society (EDS) Department and Humanitarian Engineering and Science (HES) Program hosted Dr. Amy Bix from Iowa State University and celebrated the launch of HE faculty Dr. Reddy's first book, ¡Alerta! Engineering on Shaky Ground. Dr. Reddy also traveled extensively as part of her book tour while HES student Mateo Rojas traveled to several California universities to present the HES program and how it has informed his thesis research. Later in April, the Peace Corps Prep team hosted an info panel for potential students. Finally, this week we join the rest of EDS in celebrating our spring and summer 2023 graduates!
Dr. Juan Lucena and students meet with communities in Bogota, Colombia
Dr. Juan Lucena, accompanied by HES graduate students Sofia Schlezak and Matt Parsons, led a group of undergraduate students in a unique international community engagement opportunity working with women who recycle electronic waste to make a living. Twelve students in Lucena's course, Engineering for Sustainable Community Development, who learned community engagement theories and best practices in the classroom, got to apply these by participating in community-led design projects in Puerta de Oro, an association of recyclers in Bogota, Colombia. Over spring break and with the support of Diversa, a local community-engagement organization, the group traveled to Colombia to work in person with community members on projects related to e-waste recycling which they had been co-defining with communities through weekly virtual encounters during the first part of the semester. Together with women recyclers, they scoped projects to recover copper by stripping electric cables, to identify and sort plastic so they can be sold and reused, and to dismantle printed circuit boards to recover valuable components. Students will continue to inform and refine their projects for the second part of the semester and present the final ideas to the recycling communities for approval.
Dr. Amy Bix speaks with EDS and HE students and Faculty
On March 29-30, 2023, EDS and HE welcomed Dr. Amy Bix, History Professor at Iowa State University, to Mines for meetings with students and faculty. On March 30th, Dr. Bix presented a talk on campus: "Opening technical worlds to change: Historical and current perspectives on women in engineering." Dr. Bix's talk traced the dramatic history of when, where, and how women claimed places in American engineering, transforming a field defined for centuries as distinctly masculine. She discussed how today's world of STEM education and work has radically shifted over just a few generations, yet ongoing controversies, inequities, and stresses continue to challenge the vision of "STEM for all." 
¡Alerta! Engineering on Shaky Ground Book Release Events
In celebration of its release, EDS and the HES program co-hosted a book talk about Dr. Beth Reddy's new book, ¡Alerta! Engineering on Shaky Ground. On Thursday, April 20th, several HES graduate students, coordinated by HES first-year student Lauren Stevenson, led an exciting group discussion of the book and its implications for faculty, staff, and students across campus and in the broader community.
Dr. Reddy also participated in a book tour this spring, which included book talks at
  • USGS Earthquake Science Center
  • The Center for Science, Technology, Medicine and Society at UC-Berkeley
  • The Department of Anthropology at Oregon State University
  • The Department of Anthropology at Portland State University
  • The Environment and Ethnography Lab at Dartmouth
  • The ShakeAlert Social Science Working Group
  • The Consortium for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine
Dr. Reddy has plans later this summer for book-related activities at the National Autonomous University of Mexico hosted by their Geography Department as well as additional activities elsewhere further down the road. 

Congratulations, Dr. Reddy, and thank you for sharing your incredible research and findings with us!
Presenting the HES Program in California
by Mateo Rojas, HES graduate student
After defending my thesis, I traveled to California to present about the HES program, our research approach, and how I applied this approach in my thesis research about communal gold processing in the Colombian artisanal and small-scale gold mining sector. I presented about these topics for engineering students at the University of San Diego, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, UC Berkeley, and San Francisco State University to further extend the reach of the HES program.
Peace Corps Information Panel for Interested Students
By Sam Temple, Mines Adjunct Faculty and Peace Corps Prep Coordinator
On April 19, the Peace Corps Prep program celebrated its final event of the semester, a panel discussion with three Peace Corps Prep graduating seniors: Blake Knipple, Emily Robinson, and Lily Laursen. Guests learned how to navigate the Peace Corps Prep program requirements, why Peace Corps Prep was a valuable experience, and what to expect in the Peace Corps application process. We learned about exciting post-graduation adventures which include graduate school in HE (Blake), Peace Corps service in Sierra Leone as a Science Teacher (Lily), and Peace Corps service in Madagascar as an Agriculture Extension Volunteer (Emily). We also welcomed four new Peace Corps Prep students to the program and stayed late to hear stories from Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. It was a great community building moment for the program, and we look forward to welcoming YOU to future program gatherings in Fall!
