Yr 9 science collage

Students put their design and construction skills to the test by constructing a tower to try and withstand an earthquake. Students were limited to 1 cardboard base, 50 paper straws, 40 paper clips, 20 pipecleaners and a small roll of sellotape, and could be as creative as they wanted with the shape and design.

Once constructed, each group's tower was challenged to undergo a simulated earthquake on the 'shake table', with added weights. After successfully surviving each earthquake, incremental weights were added until the tower collapsed. One group succeeded in building a tower that supported more than 4kg in addition to surviving a large earthquake.
