In this video segment, ZOOM cast members take cues from what they know about natural sediment filters, use similar materials to create their own water filters, and evaluate which combinations of materials make the fastest, most efficient filters. The segment is four minutes fifty-four seconds in length. A background ... Full description.

But that's exactly what happens when huge sections of Earth's crust crack or slip past one another. The results can range from nearly imperceptible to totally devastating. In this video segment adapted from a ZOOM television broadcast, cast members demonstrate how to make a seismometer, ... Full description.
