Open House SMORE

Earthquake PBL

Driving Question: How can we as structual engineers construct a two story house in California for Tony Stark that will withstand seismic activity?

In this project we made a model of a house for tony stark that is earthquake in California.

Atmosphere 30 Hands Project

The 30 hands project is a project about the Atmosphere that i created using two apps called PicCollage, a photo editing/making app and 30 hands, a slideshow app. This project talks about Climate Change, Global Warming, and the cause and effects of Global/Climate Warming.

Invention Convention

1. My Groups idea is the Solar Panel Car, will reduce the amount of gas use in the world. This will replace non-renewale resources (gas,coal,fossil fuels) with renewable resources (Windmill, Solar Panel, hydroelectricity). This invention can overall save the earth and help the earth become more healthy/less polluted.

2. This will reduce the use of fossil fuels by using Solar Panels. Solar Panels are panels installed mainly on houses, but usually used for every item in the world (even paper). They absorb the energy from the sun/heat and convert that into energy that will be used to power the car and let it be able to drive.

Extra Credit

My Favorite Unit in Science 6th grade was Unit 3: Earthquakes. What i liked about the unit was that we got to build the model of Tony Stark's house. I liked making the map of California showing the earthquake risks in certain locations. Like i said, i enjoyed creating the model for Tony Starks house. We barley finished and nobody liked it in my group because it was last second made and was really sensitive. But when we did the shake test, it surprisingly survived. I really enjoyed everything about it. Below there are some pictures of that unit. (Note: A water bottle leaked in my backpack and every paper is wet on the bottom.)
