The Coachella Valley Science Shakers website is a student-led project that explains features of the Coachella Valley and seismic activity. It also features information on plate tectonics, seismic evidence, and natural hazards. We provide examples about the natural hazards that threaten the Coachella Valley communities. This website highlights student projects, research, community education, and field study videos.
