Three Northwest universities share a $625,000 National Science Foundation grant to train educators from Washington and Oregon coastal communities about earthquake and tsunami dangers.
Oregon State University receives $315,000 as the lead institution, with $194,000 going to Central Washington University and $116,000 to the University of Portland.
The Cascadia EarthScope Earthquake and Tsunami Education Program will offer workshops to teachers, park and museum interpreters, and disaster preparedness educators. They, in turn will, teach the science of earthquakes and tsunamis to students and visitors as well as ways to prepare for the natural disasters.
