How can I get involved?

There are opportunities to include seismology in the classroom with or without a physical seismometer. Check out our Resources page for more information!

There are a number of companies selling educational seismometers. While IRIS does not recommend a particular instrument, check out the Seismometers page to see the options!

IRIS will be donating instruments again in 2011.  Apply to receive an AS-1 instrument and 2.5 day training from IRIS! The application period will open in March 2011 for our Fall workshop and instrument distribution.
