Ellwood School Visits NEES@UCSB Wednesday, 1 March 2006

The sixth graders from Ellwood Elementary School visited the UCSB campus and learned firsthand how scientists measure earthquakes. Using a Geotech Instruments Model S-13 seismometer housed in a see-through plexiglass case, the students were able to develop an understanding for how ground motions are measured by seismologists.


The NEES@UCSB site is funded in part by the Geoge E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Program of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Award Number CMMI-0927178.
