In this live-presenter led show students take on the role of geologists by exploring patterns of Earthquakes in order to predict future movements in Earth's crust.
Using data-driven visualizations, and recent Earthquake maps, students take flight over the San Andreas fault to observe earthquakes from the past, including the 1906 Earthquake. Then, they make predictions about future tremblers. Finally, students explore how using this information can help scientists and engineers prepare society for a safer future.
This show is specially adapted for 4th grade standards, and portions are taken from the Morrison Planetarium show Earthquakes: Evidence of a Restless Planet.
