Why do earthquakes happen? Where do they happen? What causes one earthquake to be devastating when others can barely be felt? Students experiment with models and collect data.

This program takes place in the Watershed Lab in the Earth Science Exhibit Hall, and features the Science On a Sphere exhibit. Combine this program with a field trip to the museum.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
