Capstone Project Stage 2


You will recall that at the end of Section 1 of the course (i.e., Capstone Project Stage 1), you downloaded the Coastal Vulnerability PowerPoint file in Canvas. You will use that file to build your final Capstone Project.

In addition to the PowerPoint file, you will be prompted to download, work on, and submit several worksheets along the way. The worksheets are meant for compiling notes that will be used to populate your PowerPoint. To make things easier at the end of the semester, begin to populate these worksheets, submit them when prompted, and update your PowerPoint as you go, rather than leaving it all to the end. You can polish the PowerPoint at the end!

Module 4 kicks off the worksheet process by beginning your work on Stage 2. (Note: By the mid to end of Module 4, you should have been notified of your city for the Capstone Project.)


  1. In Module 4 in Canvas, download the “Capstone Project Stage 2 - Physical System Audit Worksheet" file to work on during Modules 4-6. By the end of Module 6, you will be able to complete the Stage 2 - Physical System Audit Worksheet with notes about your chosen coastal city. Complete each section with relevant notes about your location.
  2. Work on the Stage 2 - Physical System Audit Worksheet during Modules 4-6. It is important to work on this gradually rather than just in Module 6.
  3. Submit your completed Stage 2 Worksheet to Module 6: Capstone Stage 2 in Canvas by the end of Module 6 (see the Course Calendar for the due date). Please employ the following naming convention: Last Name_First Name Stage2Worksheet.docx.
