Product Description

Build an Earthquake-Proof Structure!

Students love completing this natural disaster STEM challenge! Students learn about what causes Earthquakes, as well as some current methods structural engineers are using to design earthquake resistant buildings.

After learning about earthquakes students design, build, and test an earthquake proof structure using only the materials provided. In order to successfully complete this STEM challenge the structure must remain standing after going through an earthquake simulation.

This activity helps students develop critical thinking and engineering skills. Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.
