Hands-on science activities, edible geology, and an earthquake in an outhouse: The Exploratorium in San Francisco commemorates the 100-year anniversary of the Great 1906 Earthquake with these audio adventures in seismic science.
Earthquake Centennial podcasts coming soon!
What's in like to be in an outhouse during an earthquake? Is California going to fall into the ocean? Find out with these programs and accompanying hands-on earthquake science activities from the Exploratorium in San Francisco (not far from the San Andreas Fault).
Is California going to fall into the ocean?
Can pets predict earthquakes? Do quakes happen more often at certain times of the day or year? And could a really big one mean the end of California? Exploratorium geologist Eric Muller separates earthquake fact from fiction.
Earthquake in an outhouse
Relive the Loma Prieta quake with Amy Snyder, who was caught in an outhouse at the beach. Why didn't it, or any San Francisco skyscapers, collapse?
Edible Geology Road Trip
Join Exploratorium geologist Eric Muller on a tour of world-famous geological features to be found in the national parkland just north of the Golden Gate bridge.
Started off solid, then faultered
Don't be deceived by the production dates -- this is NOT a 2009 podcast.
The four 2006 episodes available are good, but Exploratorium failed to follow through. This is sad because the subject potential is as vast as the earth. Because they faultered in their production, I must give Faultline only 2 stars. Perhaps they can get their feet under themselves sometime in the future, but for now Faultline is not worthwhile.
