Donation Wednesday: girlstart

Today, TXESP was able to follow thru on our commitment to the GoFundMe Summer Campaign: Shake it Up.  We donated 2 of 10 shake boards to girlstart, also a 501c3 Texas non-profit STEM outreach program for young girls.

Girlstart's mission is to increase girls' interest, engagement and STEM through innovative, nationally-recognized informal STEM education programs. Through its comprehensive programming, girlstart provides a year-round, intensive suite of STEM education programs for K through 12 Girls. Girlsstart's core programs foster STEM skills development, and understanding of the importance of STEM as a way to solve the world's major problems, as well as an interest in STEM electives, majors, and careers. You can learn more about girlstart and its programs across Houston area schools at girlstart.org/houston

Propagating across the US from TX, to VA and MA, shown is a comparison of three seismograms from a powerful earthquake which shook Costa Rica....TXESP watched the teleseismic waves propagate across TX live.

The Mw6.0 earthquake epicenter is near Golfito, Costa Rica; the event began at 23:22hrs UTC with a depth of ~19kms. At this time, no tsunami alert has been issued. It's too early for damage and injury reports, but TXESP will continue to monitor the section which is known for landslides.

Continuing with our research efforts to understand the heterogeneity in the Earth, we compare three Raspberry Shake seismograms of this event.  Note the change in amplitude and wave phases as the teleseismic waves move from Costa Rica, through TX and VA, and finally to MA.  What do you observe?

Help support our #scienceeducational program for New England and Texas students!
