The immersive environment of the Visualization Center at Scripps, coupled with the presentation of current seismological research, has great education and outreach potential. Since its March 2002 opening, the Visualization Center at Scripps has had more than 2,500 visitors, and numerous virtual visitors have explored our Web pages, which include streaming QuickTime movies of geophysical data, tutorials on how to use SGI/Mac/Windows registered visualization software, and examples of visualizations developed by SIO researchers and faculty members (http://siovizcenter.ucsd.edu/library.shtml). We will continue to expand the use of the Visualization Center at Scripps for K-12 and informal education, and to use the center to supply geophysical data sets, movies, and research results to as large a group of educators as possible. Our goal is to develop more sustained K-12 educational programs and to generate assessments of the center's programs and the educational products created at the Center.
