Earthquake! A New eBook and iTunes U Course
KQED and the California Academy of Sciences recently teamed up to produce Earthquake–a new eBook and iTunes U Course. Incorporating multimedia from both organizations, the eBook and course provide an engaging, hands-on way for students and teachers to learn about the science behind earthquakes. Videos, animations, interactive graphics and other classroom-ready materials are woven together to teach about what earthquakes are, and how they move continents, form our landscape, and fit into the larger story of plate tectonics. Learn more about these two new resources!
