Description

The ‘Seismology’ booklet is part of the ‘Innovations in Practical Work’ series, and includes ideas for teaching about seismology in the classroom, student activities and additional background science for teachers. SEP has developed a number of simple low-cost pieces of equipment that provide students with hands-on experience of modelling the causes, effects, detection and location of earthquakes. These activities provide a context for students to use ideas such as energy transfer and wave properties and apply them to the interpretation of seismic data. The emphasis of the materials in this booklet is on KS4, but some of could also be used with KS3 and in Science Clubs.
