"I thought it was GREAT!!!! The kids really enjoyed the experience and the teachers were able to use that as a conversation/teaching point on what that kind of shaking would be like in their own homes, here at school, etc. The set up was easy and the fact that they had high school volunteers made it very easy from a managerial point for us. I would highly highly recommend finding ways to get this at more schools".
