the georgia tech earthquake workshops for teachers
The Georgia Tech Earthquake Workshops for Teachers
  • “Seismic Hazards” Increases teachers’ and students’ understanding of seismic hazards and ways to eliminate hazards.
  • “Earthquake Recording” The operation and construction of seismographs, and exercises for using earthquakes in teaching physics, earth science, and computing.
seismic hazards workshop
Seismic Hazards Workshop
  • Where earthquakes occur
  • Typical damage from earthquakes
  • What to do in an earthquake
  • Building structures to withstand earthquakes
  • Educating the public
  • Sample teaching exercises
earthquake recording workshop
Earthquake Recording Workshop
  • Identifying and locating earthquakes
  • Understanding how seismometers work
  • Building a demonstration seismograph
  • Operating a professional seismograph
  • Resources on the world wide web
  • Exercises for using earthquakes to teach physics, earth science, geography, and computing.
part of a growing international program
Part of a growing international program
  • PEPP (Princeton Earth Physics Program)
  • MAEC (Mid-America Earthquake Center)
  • The Georgia Tech program part of network of over 75 teachers with instruments assisted by schools that include universities in: Alaska, Oregon, Arizona, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, foreign countries, etc.
program advantages
Program Advantages
  • Students participate in obtaining data that can be used in international research.
  • Cooperative and interactive research-the data and ideas are shared among participating schools.
  • The seismometer maintains interest-the instrument records significant earthquakes when they occur and the school becomes a focus for information and education.
earthquake instruments
Earthquake Instruments
  • Cost has been a problem
  • PEPPV by Guralp ($2500) (most common and least expensive research quality instrument)
  • Demonstration seismometer constructed in workshop (very cheep but will not record low-level signal)
  • “Our solution” a low-cost system ($500)
teachers seismograph network
Teachers Seismograph Network
  • 12 High School and Middle School Teachers in Alabama and Georgia will soon have research quality PEPPV seismographs. They will be joining a national program linking students and teachers through the internet. Students will learn about earthquakes and seismic hazard. The seismographs will be contributing data on earthquakes worldwide and providing valuable coverage on local earthquakes.
plans
Plans
  • Workshops in summer, 2000 and 2001, expanding program to southeast.
  • Assist in developing unique exercises and distributing exercises to our teachers
  • Complete development of low-cost instrument for recording major earthquakes.
