What is ShakeAlert®?

About the Educational Resources Working Group

The mission of the ShakeAlert Educational Resources Working Group (ERWG) is to serve broad and diverse learners through educational resources and efforts that promote awareness, understanding, and action related to ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning.

  • Develop educational resources that promote awareness, understanding, and action related to the ShakeAlert System and earthquake science more broadly.  
  • Engage broad and diverse learners in a variety of educational settings, including formal and free-choice learning environments. 
  • Engage educators and communicators in a broad variety of settings and roles; provide tools (e.g. educational resources, professional development, network support) that empower educators to engage learners in their own communities/settings.
  • Conduct educational research and evaluation to understand various learners’ needs and priorities related to earthquake education
