Earthquakes PBL

In this project we had to build a new house for Tony Stark that could withstand an Earthquake. Our design was a two story house that was half straws and half sticks, it also used supporting beams. Driving Question:How can we, as structural engineers, construct a two story house in California for Tony Stark that will withstand seismic activity? During this project I learned that being an architect is more work than building the building.

30 Hands Project

In this project I learned about Global Warming and Climate Change. I learned that it is a serious problem and not many people are trying to help. One thing I enjoyed about this project was learning the information so I can spread it to other people.

Watch the project now!


Invention Convention

For this project we decided to make an all weather car. This reduces the amount of pollution that cars put into the atmosphere. It uses the sun, the wind, and rain to power the car. It has a solar panel and a water wheel/wind turbine. The solar panel takes energy from the sun, the water wheel/wind turbine use the wind and the rain to spin the turbine, to power the car.
