This year, Texas Educational Seismic Project (TXESP) is campaigning to raise funds to purchase (6) Raspberry Shake seismographs to be placed in Houston-area schools.

The Raspberry Shake seismograph is a scientific instrument which detects and records ground motion such as: earthquakes! erupting volcanoes, hurricanes, thunderstorms, slamming doors, children jumping on the floor…. and the list goes on and on.   “Seismographs in Schools” is a project which brings exciting, hands-on, dynamic and REAL TIME data into the classroom.  K-12 students learn concepts spanning all STEM disciplines as it is actually practised in the real world.
