SEISMOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
A professional development workshop for science administrators and teachers on Seismology in the Classroom will be held at the Weston Observatory, Weston, MA from 8:00 am to 1:30 pm on April 28, 2011. Weston Observatory is a geophysical research laboratory of the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Boston College. The recent catastrophic events in Japan have highlighted the significance of seismic activity to nations around the world and to our own lives here in Massachusetts. Please join us to learn more about methods for monitoring seismic activity, the seismic history of New England, and the Boston College seismology program for K-12 students. All science teachers, administrators and friends are welcome! A registration fee of $35, which can be paid on site, includes lunch.
