Great California ShakeOut! at Birch Aquarium

October 19: 10am-2pm

Join Birch Aquarium for the largest-ever earthquake drill in California and stay for a day of activities about seismic science. Design and construct your own building and test its ability to withstand an earthquake and meet a Scripps scientist who studies how and why the earth moves.

At 10:19 a.m., millions of Californians will "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" in The Great California ShakeOut!, the state's largest earthquake drill ever. Earthquakes can happen anywhere in California.
