SUMMARY:

High school and elementary school students have a wrong view science, scientists, and science teachers. They see science as a neutral and elitist field, guided by “geniuses" in a linear and flawless way. This perspective is many times reinforced by teachers and educational materials that often present science as a set of formulas and dogmas. As a result, students are discouraged from pursuing scientific careers and have limited understanding of the scientific process. It is important to modify the way science is taught in educational settings to promote a more accurate and inclusive view of the field. This can be accomplished by emphasizing the collaborative nature of the scientific research, the role of creativity and problem-solving in science, and the fact that scientists themselves are influenced by their worldviews and experiences. By making these changes, we can help students develop a more accurate and inclusive view of science. Consequently, this will also encourage students to pursue scientific careers and contribute to the scientific community. These changes are also necessary because from all the students who attend public schools in Brazil, only a small number go on to attend public high education institutions. This is likely due to a number of different factors, including students’ low motivation, lack of active participation, and their inability to understand the importance of schoolwork to their lives outside of school settings. We will find that by making these changes, teachers can help increase the number of students who go on to attend public institutions of higher education. This will also have a positive impact on the Brazilian economy and society as a whole. Hence, this work intends to present physics concepts related to seismology and demonstrate how they apply to this science by promoting the construction of a seismograph, an instrument used to measure the amplitude and intensity of seismic activity in the Earth's crust. Finally, we can say that the present work proposes a methodology for teaching physics concepts in the context of seismology, seeking meaningful learning. A didactic sequence is developed and applied to organize the phases of presentation and use of these concepts, especially the one that refers to the construction of a seismograph. The didactic sequence cited includes basic concepts of mechanics and waves and can include classes in the first year of high school.
