Shakeitup: Engineering Design Challenge - A Lesson in Earthquakes
January box is called "Shake it up" - and it's all about earthquakes!
You are a groovy earthquake engineer who has been contracted by the city of Los Angeles. Using only the materials from your Groovy Lab in a Box, can you design and build the tallest skyscraper that can withstand the next BIG quake? During your ENGINEERING DESIGN PROCESS, you will investigate what causes earthquakes while constructing a groovy seismograph and shake table. Explore S and P waves, fault planes, famous earthquake-proof structures around the world and much, much more!
