In this second of two video clips on simulating seismic waves, scientist Britt Argow and teacher Joe Reilly lead an activity with second grade students about how seismic energy, in the form of "P" waves (pressure or compression waves) and "S" (shear waves), travels through dense materials, such as solids, and less dense materials, such as liquids. Featured Scientists: Keith Klepeis, Ph.D. and David Sherrod, Ph.D.
