Constructing Earthquake Proof Buildings Students will achieve the following objectives: 1. Explore different materials, shapes, and design options that affect the durability of a building 2. Understand how to use models to perform controlled scientific experiments
Don't have much merit for design skyscrapers to withstand earthquakes in FL, but can definitely use some of the same ideas for designing for hurricanes. Building challenge. Lego earthquake-proof building challenge Lego club
STEM Activity Challenge Earthquake Resistant Building
This is a STEM design challenge where students will design an earthquake proof building, place it on a shake table and see if it survives an earthquake. Have students compete to make the best design by following the design process. Each packet includes the lesson plan which follows the design process, instructions on how to perform the challenge and a prototyping worksheet.
