NESTA Earth and Space Science Resource Day Breakfast - Bringing Earthquake Seimology into your Classroom with the Quake-Catcher Network
"Bringing Earthquake Seismology into your Classroom with the Quake-Catcher Network"
Presented by Jesse Lawrence, Department of Geophysics, Stanford University
The Quake-Catcher Network (QCN – http://qcn.stanford.edu) is the largest and fastest-growing seismic network in the world. QCN connects inexpensive seismic sensors to internet-connected computers hosted by individuals and schools. These inexpensive sensors are ideal for teaching concepts related to earthquake seismology. In addition, QCN provides software to help understand how earthquake records relate to the earthquake motion. Come learn how you and your students can become Quake Catchers.
