This is a STEM design challenge where students will design an earthquake proof building, place it on a shake table and see if it survives an earthquake. Have students compete to make the best design by following the design process. Each packet includes the lesson plan which follows the design process, instructions on how to perform the challenge and a prototyping worksheet.
The Catapult STEM Challenge incorporates all aspects of a quality STEM activity: easy math connection, engineering design process, student-driven learning, and hands-on fun!
