Education & Outreach

Our research group is interested in applying the scientific information we produce through different public outreach venues. These outreach activities range from educational videos on natural hazards to giving public lectures to the community and schools. Some of our activities are highlighted below.

Earthquake education video library

To raise awareness of geosciences outside the scientific community, our research group members together with students and scientists from universities in the United Kingdom have created a series of video lessons on earthquake education. The videos are visual versions of lesson plans developed and evaluated by the ParsQuake team. The "teaching duet" online pedagogy used in the videos is modelled after the approach developed by MIT BLOSSOMS. This project was funded by the European Geosciences Union Public Engagement Grant to Solmaz Mohadjer.
