Chi and Dr. Michael Behm (University of Oklahoma) visited Lawrence Montessori School on Wednesday July 11th, 2018 to give the kindergarten kids a presentation and a field demonstration on monitoring earthquakes using geophones. The interaction with these kids was super fun. They asked a lot of good questions like 'can you still record earthquake if it is happening in another country?' 'what should we do if we experience an earthquake?'. Chi enjoyed the morning spent with these brilliant kids.
Enjoy reading the comics, and think about how you would have reacted in such situations. And more importantly, think about how can we, as a whole scientific community, work toward gender parity in geosciences.
