Franklin Elementary School

On May 28, 2004 Prof. Jonathan Stewart, with the help of Steve Kang, conducted some demonstrations on earthquakes to about 40 elementary school students along with their teachers at Franklin Elementary School in Santa Monica, CA. They were able to view streaming data of their jumping in real-time using Antelope and an Episensor. Students also got a chance to climb into the mobile command center and catch a glimpse of what a researcher might experience conducting tests in the field.
