As some of you may have heard, an educational seismology workshop 
is being organized for September in Baltimore.  I think the experience
of PSN members in working with schools and the general public 
would contribute significantly to the workshop, and I invite 
interested PSN members to apply to attend.

If you have any questions about the workshop, please let me know.

U.S. Educational Seismology Network Workshop

Workshop information and application form now available at       
Applications to attend are due July 21.

We are pleased to announce the U.S. Educational Seismology Network
(USESN) Workshop, to be held at the Mount Washington Conference Center
near Baltimore, Maryland on September 13-16, 2003 (full days on Sept.
14-15). The workshop will provide a forum for exchange of ideas on
emerging opportunities for educational seismology in the U.S., and will
result in detailed educational and operations plan for the USESN
initiative. The workshop will include approximately 40 participants from
the research, education, and science outreach communities. The 2.5-day
meeting will include a mixture of oral, poster and discussion sessions,
and will conclude with formal writing assignments for education and
operations plans for the USESN.

Funding for travel, housing and meals is provided by the National
Science Foundation for up to 40 participants. Participants will be
selected based on the applicants' potential to contribute to the
educational goals of the USESN.
