PROGRAM NEWS

Seismographs in Schools

We are disappointed to announce that we will be unable to offer a full educational seismometer distribution and workshop this Fall 2011. We will not be accepting any new applications at this time. This is due to the continued difficulty in obtaining instruments. We are committed to this program, and we are searching for a solution that will allow us to continue to support our existing teachers. We hope to be able to reinstate our training program and instrument distribution soon.
