Join us on Thursday, September 15, 2022, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM ET for another edition of NSTA's Science Update web seminars.

Did you feel it? An earthquake is a shaking movement of the Earth’s Crust as stress overcomes friction. This web seminar will provide basic background to help attendees make sense of this natural phenomenon.  Earthquakes, what they are, what causes them, what they can tell us about the Earth, and how we measure them will be covered.

Participants will also become familiar with a variety of resources from NSTA and other organizations that will help all learners uncover the science of earthquakes as well as be introduced to tools such as the MyShake App, the USGS "Did You Feel It” website, the IRIS Seismic Monitor, and Lastquake that provide multiple opportunities for users to actively engage in crowdsourced citizen science and really shake up their learning.

All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.

We invite you to register for upcoming web seminars at NSTA.
