The Nepal Earthquakes: Engineering, Volunteering and Technology

  In this month's GOLDRush blog highlight, we look at the how engineering, volunteering and technology helped the victims of the Nepal earthquakes. Here's a blurb: "It’s 11:56am on Saturday 25th April 2015, when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake shook Nepal from within and brought the landmark Dharahara Tower to rubble within seconds. So many of us, oblivious to the aftermath of such a powerful earthquake went about our daily lives, giving no thought to one of nature’s most disastrous events, killing more than 8,800 people, injuring another 23,000 and resulting in hundreds of thousands homeless."
