As every year, tours and presentations formed an important part of
BSL's public relations
activities. Each month, several groups,
ranging from middle-school students to scientists and
engineers, tour our laboratory under the guidance of a
graduate student or a member of the staff.
The BSL hosted several special groups during 2006-2007. The
geology class from Bishop Stopford School
in England made its annual stop for a tour of the laboratory
and the Hayward Fault. Several classes at different
grade levels received tours. In addition, BSL graduate students
visited local elementary, middle and high schools to
talk about earthquakes and how we measure them.
In addition to the tours, Drs. Romanowicz, Allen, Dreger, Hellweg,
and Uhrhammer presented talks on earthquakes and related phenomena to
public groups and the media.
