Earthquakes and geohazards

Live Event

During this upper primary session we will explore earthquakes and other geohazards in the Australian context. When is a natural hazard a disaster? How do we record earthquakes? Does Australia experience earthquakes or tsunami? What does the magnitude number mean? We will answer these questions and more during this interactive session with our experienced educators. Participant numbers are limited for this two-way experience and we will welcome student questions.

Cost: Free

Capacity: 30 students per booking
