February 16 2019 to February 17 2019 Marriott Wardman Park Hotel
Create an Earthquake and Explore Seismology!
Be a seismic detective and answer these questions: 1) Did any earthquakes happen around the world today? 2) Where do most earthquakes occur? 3) Where do you think the next earthquake will occur?
Excited about physics, math and Earth science? Come explore real-time earthquake locations and learn about the dynamic nature of the Earth. You can also see how scientists use seismic waves to image the Earth's interior – from the shallow subsurface to the core. Be sure to ask about everything seismologists do – from probing the Earth for fuel sources to studying earthquake hazards.
Visit the IRIS display and a wide range of other hands-on science at the American Association for the Advancement of Science's Family Science Days!
The event will take place from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on both Saturday, February 16 and Sunday, February 17, 2019.
