Tours and Presentations

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.
