The Science of San Andreas presented by Eric Baer (Geology)
On Friday, the latest in a long line of geological disaster movies opens: “San Andreas” staring Dwayne Johnson (aka “The Rock”). Will Hollywood get the science right this time? Or will this movie fall into the great tradition of playing fast and loose with the facts like so many before it? Could the San Andreas produce multiple magnitude 9 earthquakes?
Location: Building 3, room 102

Science Seminar is a weekly set of presentations by Highline faculty about an area in their field of expertise. Designed to illustrate the cutting edge of science, technology and medicine for a general audience, the series is open to the public but also can be taken for college credit. In some cases faculty from outside the sciences illustrate how science and technology impact their field.
