BLOSSOMS - Can Earthquakes Be Predicted?

This video module uses a simple analog setup to explore why earthquakes are so unpredictable. The setup is simple enough that students should be able to assemble and operate the setup on their own with teacher supervision. It is important to note that students should be familiar with the following prerequisite concepts before beginning the module: Earth’s interior structure, plate tectonics and plate motions, properties of Earth materials, and faults and fault motions.
