Open House

Earthquake PBL

This project was about how buildings withstand seismic activity. Our project was to build a two story house out of limited material such as posical sticks, toothpicks, string, straws and clay.

Driving Question- How can we a structural engineers constuct a two story house for Tony Stark, which will withstand seismic activity.


Oir design- This project myself and my team came up with a designs for Tony Stark which we knew would withstand the shake table. In our design we constructed a house of popsical sticks shaped in a "x" with straws as a roof. To bring it all together we used clay to make it stick.

What I learned- From this team project I learned how to build and work together as a team. Also I learned more about how engineers build and create building that seem impossible.
