Design and Technology Project
This inspired us to do a design and technology project based on designing, building and evaluating structures that could withstand an earthquake. Our Design Brief was to: Design and make a structure that will fit on the ‘shake tray’; it must be at least 30 cm high and withstand shaking for 10 seconds.
The shake tray used computer code to shake a tray of jelly to represent the earth's crust.
Below are photographs of our planning, designing, testing and evaluating our structures.
