Students Design Earthquake-Safe Structures
Design students have begun a new unit, in collaboration with Science class, where we will explore designing and building earthquake-safe structures. Check out Haiku for an overview of learning targets and activities in the unit. Also, tentatively mark your calendars for Thursday, March 16th from 2:15 - 3:00 for an open invitation to come watch our final test of student designed earthquake-proof structures. We will be using a shake table to simulate earthquakes of increasing magnitude to see which building survives the strongest quake!
