2004 Spring Student Research Symposium

Saturday Events

The beginning of an event-full symposium
Terry organizes the group for a seismic refraction demonstration

Michael asks the inevitable question in the seismic station, "Notice anything odd about the floor?"
"...and this is what happens to the sensors during an earthquake..."
Gary prepares the group for a journey to the center of the earth... or at least the first 124 ft
The students learn how to use a borehole seismometer
The students ponder their seismic velocity calculations while Terry ponders lunch
A group from Arlington HS discuss the latest 'event'
The Thayer Juggling Troup provides some after-dinner entertainment
Arlington High School defends their table from a popball
And the final event of the day is planned:
Ultimate Frisbee!!
