Welcome To Pioneer's Open House

The Earthquake PBL was, building a house that can withstand a natural disaster which was a earthquake. In my group we build a house for Tony Stark that could withstand an earthquake. Our driving question was, "how can we, as structured engineers, construct a two story house in California for Tony Stark that will withstand seismic activity. Our design for Tony Stark was big and had a lot of toothpicks to make it stronger and to also make it look stronger. The main points I learned about this project was team work, building a strong house like an actual construction worker. These are the examples of the Earthquake PBL project.
