Slowly, the tectonic plates are moving. Somewhere deep beneath your feet, the rocks in the Earth are squeezing. Someday they might suddenly break and slip, sending waves of energy through the rock, shaking the ground, and knocking over buildings.

Scientists and engineers work together to figure out which areas are at risk of earthquakes, to build buildings that will not fall down, and to design special warning systems. If you understand how earthquakes work, you can be prepared, too.

All of this is real science, written at a level that kids can read and understand. The text is supplemented with illustrations and photographs to make the science more vivid, appropriate for both standard Kindle and tablet formats. At the end of the book you will find a self-quiz to test your new knowledge, additional activities that build on the science, and a glossary for the scientific terms used in the book.

Judith Hubbard is a geology professor with a PhD from Harvard University and a BS from Caltech – and also two young children. She started the In Depth Science series with the goal of making college-level science accessible to children as young as eight years old. Kids are natural scientists. This series allows kids to explore their interests and understand the natural processes going on all around them.
