Workshops led by EarthScope staff:

  • Physical Models To Visualize And Explore Volcanoes, Glaciers, And Plate Deformation
    • Friday, March 22 | 4:00- 5:00 PM | Colorado Convention Center – 606
    • Use simple and inexpensive models to engage your students to explore earthquakes, plate tectonic, and other ground deformation processes such as volcanic inflation/deflation and rapid glacial melting.
  • More than just earthquakes! Geophysics contributes to the science of climate change, space weather, glaciers, volcanoes, and much more!
    • Saturday, March 23 | 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM | Colorado Convention Center – 606
    • Learn how geophysical instruments measure the changes in our environment such as landslides and river evolution using freely available lidar, measure volcanic deformation, space weather, climate change, and more! FREE activities you can use in your classroom will be demonstrated.
  • TikTok as a microlearning tool: Explore its potential in Earth science education with EarthScope
    • Saturday, March 23 | 8:45 AM – 9:15 AM | Colorado Convention Center – Mile High Ballroom 4D
    • Explore instructional strategies to enable students to consume and create TikToks to further their understanding of and engagement with Earth science topics. Learn how to navigate the educational science content landscape on TikTok, to use as a learning resource for students and as an engagement tool.
  • Locating Earthquake Epicenters Online
    • Saturday, March 23 | 11:40 AM – 12:40 PM | Colorado Convention Center – Bluebird Ballroom 3A
    • Bring a laptop or iPad to this session to explore our new web-based interactive earthquake lab. This easy-to-use tool will allow your students to learn and practice earthquake location and analysis techniques using real seismic data.
