At Raspberry Shake, we believe students really learn and are inspired by science when they are actually doing science in practice. And not just any science – science that is real, tangible, and hands-on. Science that makes a difference. And with Raspberry Shake, not only is this possible, but it is also fun!
“With projects like Raspberry Shake, that distant idea of ‘science making a difference’ becomes reality.”
Raspberry Shake is unique in that when a device is set up and connected, it automatically increases our seismic network’s ability to monitor earthquakes and other seismicity in that region. This is pretty incredible by itself, but now imagine students at the forefront of these new seismic stations.
Imagine students; setting up the seismographs, doing data analysis on the seismic readings, helping to promote earthquake awareness in their community. Students making a real difference!
Too often students’ perspective on science is one of passive information intake and dissemination. This method of learning, as much as it meets the current testing standards, often falls short of really inspiring students to actually want to do more science. With projects like Raspberry Shake, that distant idea of ‘science making a difference’ becomes a reality.
