Science Fun!!

We’ve spent some time learning about earthquakes, and today we’re putting some of that knowledge into practice by building a structure that can withstand the forces of an earthquake. They kept in mind the shape, foundation, height, weight and other factors that may influence the stability of their structure while building.



They also had to decide on details of the earthquake that would hit their structures; the number of shakes it will have, its magnitude, the direction it will shake, and the kind of seismic waves the shake will represent. Can you tell which structures stood, and which fell?
