Open House 2016
The driving question was how can we as structural engineers, construct a two-story house in California for Tony Stark that will withstand seismic activity.
Designing the home was in my opinnion the most fun part of this project. The design for the roof was, that there are bent straws that are connected to the house and each other with clay. To fill in the extra space would be the toothpicks heldd together with clay too. For the walls the sticks are placed side by side also staying in place with clay. Second to last the floor is made completly out of clay, and last there is a redd string running across the walls to show where the second floor starts.
I thought that this project was fun. I love to design, build, and improve on my teamwork skills. This project also helped me learn more about earthquakes with the textbook. When I build or create something I learn it so the Earthquake PBL was a perfect project. Plus I learned so much new material and information. Like how to build a house to withstand and earthquake and how structual engineers really build homes. Or what an earthquake really was other then that it is when the ground is shaking. The Earthquake PBL taught me so much and was fun.
Tony Starks House
Tony Starks finished house. Home sweet home.
The Location of Mr. Starks Home
The purple squre is where wre decited to put Mr. Starks home.
This is the blueprint. The top of the paper is the top of the house and the bottom of the paper is the side of the house.
30 Hands Project
The fun part about this project was using all the different apps. What I mean by this is I loved exploring the different types of apps we use to create this project. The apps we used are, pic collage, 30 hands, and google images. Pic collage was my favorite app that we used because I think that putting pictures in with all the fun backgrounds and borders was fun, and don't forget the stickers. Overall this project help me learn about the atmosphere and was fun well I was learning.
