Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, Norman

Info: Get ready for the science of earthquakes, tsunamis and earthquake engineering! Jump on the Quake Karaoke platform and match an earthquake seismogram! Build your structure, set it on a “beach,” and launch a wave in the 16-ft Tsunami Tank! Then replay the impact in slow motion and improve your design. Complete Puzzled Earth, the plate tectonic puzzle, before time runs out and the pieces fall! Spin through geologic time to make Earth’s continents move and re-form. Be an engineer as you design and build structures to withstand earthquakes on the Shake Table. Find out what engineers do to keep our world safer…when the Earth shakes! Exhibit sponsored by Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores.
