Earthquakes PBL

Driving Question- How can we, as engineers, construct a two story house in California for Tony Stark that will stand seismic activity.

For our Earthquake PBL project, we were told to make a house for Tony Stark that can stand seismic activity. We were given materials that included: Popsicle sticks, toothpicks, clay, and a plate. After building, our building went through Mrs. Chappas' shake test. After an intense shake out, our house survived.

Atmosphere 30 Hands Project

For this project, we were told to create a nine slide 30 Hands presentation with a voice over. It was to consist of nine slides. Two being the title and resorces, and the others to be about climate change and global warming.

Invention Convention

For this project, we were asked to create an invention using a renewable resorce. We chose to use a hydroelectric water wheel. Our invention solves the problem of wasting water. On average, a person uses about seventy gallons of water per day. With the H2O Multi Home Power Sorce, those seventy gallons go to work. Our invention reuses water.

Favorite Unit This Year

My favorite unit this year was Earthquakes. I enjoyed the PBL project the most. I liked the shake test the most becuase we got to test our building skills. (Our building stood up)

Using this, we desided where to build his house.
