About This Site

The Boston College Educational Seismology Project (BC-ESP) offers an educational opportunity for students, teachers, and their communities to be directly involved with scientific research. This project is operated by Weston Observatory, a research laboratory of the Department of Geology and Geophysics at Boston College, in partnership with the Boston College Lynch School of Education.

The primary focus of the BC-ESP is to use seismology as a medium for inviting students into the world of science research. Specifically, we encourage inquiry-based learning through investigation of earthquakes recorded by seismographs operating in K-12 schools and colleges. While students in K-12 schools and colleges remain our primary focus, the broader purpose of the BC-ESP is to encourage students of all ages to learn about and deepen their understanding of all aspects of science in general and seismology in particular.
