Blossm in Oklahoma Bridging Local Outreach
and Seismic Signal Monitoring
BLOSSM is a geoscience outreach program which is placing 100 seismographs, called Raspberry Shakes, into K-16 educational institutions, and public learning spaces such as museums and libraries. Our goal is to promote integrated curriculum opportunities through the use of this educational technology, while expanding our seismic network.
We are currently in the Regional Rollout (phase 2) of a Three-Phase Rollout Plan. During the Pilot, we deployed 10 units. During Phase 2, the Regional Rollout, we will deploy an additional 30 units. During Phase 3, the Statewide Rollout, we will deploy the remaining 60 units.
We will support participants in BLOSSM through mini-workshops to provide time for teachers to work with one another, and to have time with our seismic analysts and curriculum experts.

Teacher Professional Development Workshops OGS can provide professional development experiences
We can customize a professional development experience for your group of K-12 teachers. Dr. Molly Yunker, the Education & Outreach Coordinator for the OGS has a Ph.D. in Science Education, and can host a workshop to help Earth Science teachers align content to the Oklahoma Academic Science Standards. We can develop an engaging and inquiry-based workshop experience, using various resources within our community. Please contact Molly Yunker for more information or to discuss your workshop needs.
Visit from a Geologist An OGS geologist can visit your classroom or school to meet with your students
The Oklahoma Geological Survey has many Geologists that can visit your classroom to chat with your students, or engage with students through a school-wide assembly! If you're covering an Earth Science topic, or you're interested in exposing students to careers in the geosciences, please contact Molly Yunker to setup a visit with one of our science staff.
