Until buildings can be cloaked from earthquakes or built to levitate above them, seismic sensors will help warn people of impending temblors — but seismologists always need more data. Rather than expanding earthquake tracking through expensive sensors, a new project in Taiwan aims to crowdsource quake data through Internet-savvy high school science students.
