New Release

AmaSeis Version 2.0 Level 2008.02.02

SpiNet serves teachers across the country and around the world using seismic instruments or real-time seismic data in K-16 classrooms. We provide a website with answers to frequently asked questions, as well as telephone and electronic mail support. Additionally, our site includes tools to share seismic data in real-time, classroom activities, data on historical events, and technical support documents for seismic instruments. Our hope is to bridge the gap between science classrooms to create an international educational seismic network.

The AS-1 Educational Seismic Network

is a growing network of K-16 teachers across the country and around the world. The AS-1 Seismometer is a educational seismometer designed to introduce students to the world of seismology.

Explore our station maps, and join a growing movement of teachers using seismic data to engage students in science. Are you operating an AS-1 currently? Share your data with other teachers!
