Earthquake Specialist Visits Shanghai Dutch School

01 december 2016

The BISS Puxi Shanghai Dutch students from KS3 must have been really well behaved so far this year. Not only did they have a special visit from Sinterklaas this week, they were also lucky enough to have an Earthquake Specialist visit their Humanities lesson.

Last Wednesday, one of our Year 8 students’ grandfather, Mr. Heinz Jakobs, came to speak to all BISS Puxi KS3 Shanghai Dutch School  students about his experiences as an engineer with earthquake simulators.

The students were able to discover and learn about the different kinds of disasters and earthquakes that occur. Mr. Jakobs explained what causes earthquakes to happen, how they are measured and how earthquake simulators can help prevent damage and loss of life. In the future, our students will also be able to recognise signs of a possible disaster. It was clearly a very interesting afternoon and on behalf of the students and myself, I would like to thank Mr. Jakobs again for his valuable contribution to our Humanities topic of ‘Active Earth’.
