PUPILS at a Glasgow school were stunned when a seismometer they were using for a science project had detected the recent Haiti quake.
The kids, from Cardonald's Lourdes Secondary School, were gifted the apparatus by the British Geological Survey to detect earth tremors for a science project.
And when they checked it last Wednesday morning they knew something big had happened.
Tens of thousands of Haitians and tourists are believed to have died in the massive quake.
Third year physics student Aidan McIlwaine, 14, said: "It is interesting that something so far away could have an impact in Glasgow.
"But we feel really sad to see all the people killed or affected by it."
