Activity Narrative

The NEES@UCSB education and outreach team visited the Montessori Center School and displayed posters and set up Make Your Own Earthquake stations. Posters included images of plate tectonics, the earth's interior, and seismicity in southern California. The NEES@UCSB education and outreach team also brought an old seismometer for show and tell. Along with discussions, students generated earthquakes by jumping next to MEMS accelerometers. Students left with printouts of the earthquakes they generated.
