Learn & Prepare
SCEC’s Communication, Education, and Outreach (CEO) program creates and delivers information and resources to the general public, government agencies, the broader geoscience community, engineers, students, businesses, and the media. SCEC CEO addresses the third element of SCEC’s mission: Communicate understanding of earthquake phenomena to the world at large as useful knowledge for reducing earthquake risk and improving community resilience.
SCEC CEO is organized into four interconnected focus areas:
- Public Education and Preparedness: educates people of all ages about earthquakes, and motivates them to become prepared;
- K-14 Earthquake Education Initiative: seeks to improve earth science education and school earthquake safety;
- Experiential Learning and Career Advancement: provides research opportunities, networking, and more to encourage and sustain careers in science and engineering; and
- Implementation Interface: connects SCEC scientists with partners in earthquake engineering research, and communicates with and trains practicing engineers and other professionals.
