Seismology for Students

Boston College Educational Seismology Project

The Boston College Educational Seismology Project (BC-ESP) is offering a unique opportunity for adults to learn all about seismology and other aspects of Earth Science, and to experience the world of scientific research through a series of evening or weekend workshops at Weston Observatory. The BC-ESP team of seismologists and instructors is led by BC Professor Alan Kafka. This program uses seismology as a medium for inviting people into the world of science research through inquiry-based learning by investigation of earthquakes recorded by seismographs.
