Public Education Shake Tables


Public Education Shake tables are used by universities, science museums, emergency planning and education organizations, and other public education institutions to provide the public with the realistic experience of being in an earthquake.  In conjunction with educational exhibits, videos, and lectures, these tables prepare the young and adults alike to better respond in an earthquake - with reduced fear, safer procedures and less surprise.  A well-known educational precept is that the more senses one uses to learn about a subject, the better the lessons are learned.  Experiencing the actual motions of an earthquake adds another dimension to the learning process.  These lessons save lives.


In addition, these tables are also suitable for investigating certain engineering issues related to earthquake safety, such as the adequacy of wall attachments for book shelves and pictures, for suspended lighting or ceilings, or for the overturning of furniture or equipment.


ANCO’s public education tables have a library of historical and theoretical earthquakes and a PC-based controller that includes synchronized video and audio effects (see the ANCO program POSEIDON).
