A group of Stanford students and faculty have helped teach residents of a village high in the Peruvian Andes to use "geomesh" to retrofit adobe buildings vulnerable to deadly collapse during an earthquake. As a result, the local schoolhouse is much safer, and the villagers know how to replicate the process in other vulnerable buildings.
