Dear 2018 IRIS Workshop Attendees:

Please consider attending a Special Interest Group on "Educational and Citizen Science Seismology"

Tuesday, June 12, 4:30-5:15 pm, in the Acoma Room

Scientists and education specialists have been supporting and developing educational seismology networks in the US and globally for decades. Citizen seismology has been developing and expanding on a parallel track over the same time period. While the approaches to engage students and the public in seismology can have somewhat different goals, there is much overlap and much to be gained in closer collaboration. This SIG will explore successful models and challenges of both approaches and discuss future opportunities for engaging a broad audience.
