Seismology

Moneystown NS has been apart of the Seismology in Schools initiative since 2007. We are the only primary school, and one of two schools in Co.Wicklow (the other being Scoil Conglais, the post-primary school in Baltinglass) to register seismic activity in the Garden County.

The school's 'Seismology Squad', a group of students from 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th classes, registers the affect, in Ireland, of any earthquake from around the global. The 'Squad' captures the information and uploads the data to the Geophysics department of the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies where the national data is correlated.
