In this design challenge, learners will engineer a structure and see if it can survive an earthquake they create. As earthquake engineers, leaners will use materials from around the home to build an earthquake-safe structure and a DIY shake table. The activity covers building, testing, and re-building creations to examine if structures can successfully support a "live load." Includes instructions on building a shake table, a graphic explanation of how structures move during an earthquake, and suggested story framework to extend the activity. A Spanish version of the activity is also available.
