Alex's Science Extravaganza!
The Tony Stark project was to make a model that could withstand seismic activity, and build it in a location less likely to have earthquakes. We had to research locations and how engineers build structually sound houses. Then we had to build a model and do a shake test to see if it was sturdy or not. Finally we did interview questions on building, and the shake test. That was the Tony Stark project.
We created a structure that is two-story, made out of toothpicks, wooden sticks, straws, and clay. It withstood our shake test with onky slight damage to the frame. The side of it dropped a little bit and one of the sticks came undone at the bottom, but other than that, it withheld the "earthquake". We took ideas from everyone in the group's designs and put together into one model. We also had to research about earthquakes and how to make the house more stable. Then we started building the first story, tested it, built the second story, and tested the full model. It withstood the shake test very well, and the project turned out successful.
