  • IRIS Seismographs in Schools - In the News
    by Rachel Canelli Bucks County Courier Times Teacher Dave Curry goes over seismograph readings with students in his eighth grade Earth Space Science class at Holland Middle School in Holland Tuesday A seismograph in Curry s classroom recorded how much both the Haiti and Chile earthquakes were felt there Matt Stanley Staff Photographer A seismograph in Dave Curry s classroom picked up the vibrations from the Haitian and Chilean quakes They were the quakes felt round the world When major tremors shook Haiti and Chile this winter vibrations made their presence known as far away as Bucks County A working electronic seismograph in a Council Rock classroom picked up both earthquakes So Dave Curry an eighth grade earth and space science teacher at Holland Middle School put his lesson about rocks on hold this week and shifted the focus to earthquakes to take advantage of the teachable moment It really showed that something major had occurred Curry said as he discussed the quakes screen graphs which were playing back in real time across a whiteboard Events around the world really do cause the ground to shake where we live even if we can t feel it More than a year ago Curry obtained training and the seismograph which is an instrument that measures the motions of the ground through a grant from the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology Since 2000 the Institution has donated more than 200 of the mechanisms to schools across the country The seismograph can sense student movement a truck driving by in the middle of the night or even a bird flying into a window Without that tool Curry and his students wouldn t have known that the upheaval in Chile subtly moved their classroom kind of like feeling someone walk by if you re sitting still It s really neat that even though we re not there we could still see and feel it said 14 year old Caitlin Jackson It still involves us Like the ripple effect of a stone thrown into a pond or a boat rising and falling on the ocean s waves it took three hours before the Holland school s graph settled down That s compared to the one hour it took after the Haitian shaking said Curry Although the earthquake in Haiti was devastating the Chilean trembling was 500 times as intense It actually caused the entire planet to ring like a bell changed the Earth s rotation so much that the globe lost one millionth of a second and shifted the world s slightly tilted axis by three inches he said While that probably doesn t seem like much right now the Earth s tilt is what creates seasons which could be affected over time he added It s nice to tie in what we re learning in science with current events and to be able to understand the terms said Adam Davis 13 That s Curry s ultimate goal to apply science by finding it out in the world in real life And Curry said he knows that nothing captures kids interest better than showing them how the very ground beneath their feet is shaking Students see Earthquakes Impact Spring 2010 by Kyle Midura KURL 8 BILLINGS Students at Senior High have been following recent earthquakes like the one in Haiti in great detail but probably not in the way you think This is the movement of the ground in Billings during the Haiti earthquake said Earth Sciences Teacher Craig Beals as he pointed to a seismogram Earthquakes have an international impact and for ninth graders in Mr Beals class that s readily apparent It may not look like much but their seismograph is nearly as accurate as those used by the U S Geological Survey We get just about anything that s a 6 0 or greater worldwide said Beals but most anything from Yellowstone that s a 2 0 or greater I ve always been kind of interested in Yellowstone said student Ashleigh Brady and when earthquake stuff came up in class I was pretty excited I always wanted to see a seismograph In the age of now Beals says school needs to move at the pace of Facebook Twitter and texting A spike in web hits follows a spike in quakes I check in whenever I can get a hold of the computer said Ashleigh It gives them an opportunity to experience science instead of just reading it out of a textbook said Beals Mr Beals says class can be interrupted by quakes on the other side of the world Instantly the students want to know what s shaking right now where is this coming from For that they turn to the National Science Foundation and students share their findings in a sort of reverse show and tell I think at first my dad was like why is she interested in school all of a sudden said Ashleigh I ve gotten a few e mails from parents Did you get any of those swarms But once he noticed that I was really into it he thought it was really neat that I was taking an interest in class added Ashleigh Making the Grade Paducah Tilghman High School April 2010 By Laura Wibbenmeyer PADUCAH KY KFVS Tilghman High School has something you probably haven t seen in a classroom before a seismometer A seismometer is used to measure motions of the ground including those generated by earthquakes With the recent Haiti and Chile earthquakes this new piece of equipment is earth shattering It s extremely rare for kids this age to be involved with anything as far as a seismometer goes said teacher Nancy Mullenax Mullenax teamed up with fellow teacher Alan Graham Tucker to make Tilghman High School home of a seismometer and they say this is bringing a huge interactive element into their classrooms Anytime you can get away from literature students adults anyone will get more excited about it and it sticks
