Coastineers Learning resources combine science, engineering, geology and geography KS3 learning and GCSE principles. We are passionate about the coast and coastal management, specialising in interactive geography practicals and demonstrations. We know not all students can get to the coast so our resources aim to take the coast to them! Find us on Twitter: @coastineer and @gcseasider.

This STEM lesson plan combines science, geology and geography KS3 learning and GCSE principles. The purpose of the lesson is to introduce students to the main causes of tsunamis, the impacts they can have on coastal communities and how the interaction of tectonic plates form ocean trenches and mid oceanic ridges. This lesson is complimented by a hands on student practical experiment: Coastineers Tsunami Model. This model allows students to explore the main causes of tsunamis in the classroom. Alternatively, the lesson works just as well with our YouTube video: Tsunami Model Demo. The Coastineers have been working on the coast for a combined 30 years as engineers and scientists and we hope you enjoy this lesson.
