Earthquake Challenge

Presented by: Andrew Potozniak

What does it take to build a structure that can withstand a simulated earthquake with common house-hold items? During this session, kids will use their creativity and problem-solving skills to build structures to see how severe of an earthquake they can withstand on a shake-table. Kids will investigate and discuss what designs survived the shake-table the longest and why. Then they will revise their designs with the goal of building more resilient structures. Will you engineer the best structure to withstand an earthquake?
