Summary:Like other waves, seismic waves obey the laws of physics. This activity is intended to provide students with a real-world application for the concepts of waves. It should follow an activity, such as the traditional light lab used in physics courses to to explains concepts such as reflection, refraction and transmission of energy.

NGSS Discplinary Core Ideas:ESS2.A; PS4.A
NGSS Performance Expectations:HS-ESS2-3; HS-PS4-1
NGSS Science and Engineering Practices:Developing and using models
NGSS Crosscutting Concepts:Energy and matter: Flows, cycles, and conservation
Subjects: 6-8; 9-12; energy; high school; middle school; seismology
