The link between education and scientific activities is crucial for a correct approach to outreach of natural hazards information. Schools are the ideal laboratory to experiment with combining these activities. The aim of the program presented here was to involve high schools in the data collection of earthquake effects, providing to the students targets of observation and instruments to perform this research.
