Explore the power of earthquakes working as an engineer, seismologist, and geologist. Will you be able to escape the quake?

As earthquake explorers, students will investigate why and where earthquakes occur, be challenged to engineer earthquake-proof buildings, and examine the treacherous island ‘Terra Felix’ for liveability. Students will be able to see live data from our in-house seismometer and see if they can break the Richter scale.
