      Hi dhruvb789,

      I think it would have to be an individual school as the cost of a seismometer is around £500. There are already around 60 schools in Scotland, around 20 in Ireland and even more in England and Wales, who are part of the School Seismometer Project and have already recieved their seismometer and have attended a workshop on how it works. Those were donated to the schools by the British Geological Survey with various funding partners from the oil and gas industry, so it would be nice if i could donate one to a school by winning “i’m a Scientist”. 🙂
