IRIS Seismographs in Schools Program

IRIS’s Seismographs in Schools Program serves teachers across the country and around the world using seismic instruments or real-time seismic data in K-16 classrooms. Additionally, the web site includes tools to share seismic data in real-time, classroom activities, and technical support documents for seismic instruments. The hope is to bridge the gap between science classrooms to create an international educational seismic network.

Join a growing movement of teachers using seismic data to engage students in science.


  1. We are going to make a seismograph. We would like to communicate with other schools in the U.S. to see how much stronger or weaker their signals are! Then, with their help we can figure out where it came from. We're knew to this seismograph stuff. If you have any advice please tell!

  2. If you contact me by email at, I can help connect you with some useful resources.
