Experts have been predicting “The Big One” (a massive earthquake along BC’s coast) for years. What are we doing about it? More importantly, what should we be doing? This afternoon, Johanna Wagstaffe, seismologist, meteorologist and science host for CBC Vancouver, presents her new book, Fault Lines: Understanding the Power of Earthquakes and shares her journey toward understanding the earth beneath our feet. What does a 9.1 megathrust earthquake look like? How will survivors across BC gather and communicate with the rest of the country? What supplies should you store in your emergency kit? During this highly visual presentation, you’ll learn the important science behind what makes the earth rumble as well as hear the stories of kids around the world who’ve experienced the wonder—and terror—of an earthquake.
Suitable for grades 4-7.
