  1. PBS:Savage Earth

  2. Big Trouble in Earthquake Country,site is ideal for 9-12 grade students interested in learning more about earthquakes, how they happen, when they happen, etc. The site is hosted by the Lawrence Hall of Science at University of California, Berkeley and developed by Kevin Cuff, an instructor and curriculum developer at the Astronomy-Geology-Physics education department at the Lawrence Hall of Science. Students can learn about the likelihood and hazards of quakes, create strategies to minimize loss of life and damage to local infrastructure.
