Building Big Online Lab (write answers in your science journal)
Creating Your Seismic Google Slide Presentations:
- Presentations must include the following:
- Knowledge of earthquakes: What are tectonic plates? How do earthquakes happen? What are the different types of faults? What is an aftershock? What is the difference between a P and S wave? How much damage does earthquakes cause?
- Knowledge of earthquake engineering: How would your building hold up to the different types of forces (compression, tension, torsion, and shear). Good place to help you with this is the Building Big link on my DP!
- Why did you build your structure the way it is?
- Why should your structure be chosen as the winner?
