STEM Lesson/Activity: How Earthquakes Knock Down Buildings

Professor Michael Wysession will examine the human risks from earthquake hazards. In a hands-on demonstration, Michael will show how not only the size but also the frequency of the shaking is important in determining whether or not an earthquake will knock down a building.

Michael Wysession has been a Geophysics Professor at Washington University in St. Louis for 30 years, doing research and teaching about earthquakes. Michael is also an international leader in geoscience literacy and education, and was one of the lead authors of the U.S. Next Generation Science Standards.
