Open House Science Smore
PBL Earthquake Project
In this project, we made a house that was for "Tony Stark", because (pretend that he wanted a new house in California). We first plotted the location of our house in California where there was a low chance of earthquakes. We then formed in groups. We each drew two models of our house, and we choose the best one. Then we get supplies - sticky material, popsicle straws, and more. Using them, we have around two weeks to finish our project, and test it if it can withstand shaking. We also write a script which has questions about the project. With the script, we make a video.
Our whole house fell apart in 10 seconds.
We then did the second floor, and then our house fell apart. We redid it and brought it to testing.
Me, Julian, Matthew, and Ian first built some models of your house and tried to make it not fall down, but most of the times the marshmallow was not sticky enough. So we used more marshmallows but they got really sticky.
Link to 30 hands project
I liked making the video. I also liked making the slides decorative, and educational. I think the 30 hands project was creative and fun. We used pic collage to make slides about global warming, and other topics. We then make a video with a background of us reading our script about the information in each slide.
