    Name Recognition. We will create a Wordle (http://www.wordle.net/) of all contributors’ names, in which the font size of your name will be proportional to the dollar amount contributed to the project. The final Wordle will be a permanent part of the credits in our Kinect Quake Catcher Game and will also be available for download from our website in 2012.

Included in this venue is an introductory overview of the project given by a Scripps seismologist, who will be available to answer questions during the full 2-hour event.

Our group will supply the game-play fun for up to 2 hours.
