KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) - Ketchikan students will be using earthquake sensors for class work, beginning next year.

The Ketchikan Daily News (https://is.gd/5EkgOd) reports that the Ketchikan School Board on Wednesday unanimously approved a request to spend $31,000 to purchase two of the earthquake sensor platforms.

School district technology coordinator Bill Whicker says the platforms transmit data up to a satellite.

He says Ketchikan students will be “interfacing with NASA engineers” to provide quality control on the data.
