Florida-based Cubicco's line of flatpack homes are tougher than they look, and are rated to withstand hurricane wind speeds of up to 180 mph (290 km/h). They're also green too, and come with a number of sustainable options, including rainwater harvesting and solar power.

Getting into the path of a storm is an excellent way to increase knowledge of tropical cyclone systems. The online interactive hurricane tracker takes you on the path of Hugo, Andrew, Camille and more as you see the development from tropical depression, to tropical storm, and finally to hurricane. Wind speed and Saffir-Simpson Scale hurricane category ratings are even color coded for ease.

During this activity students working in pairs will simulate hurricane-speed winds in a body of water.  The lab will teach 6th grade students two facts about hurricanes; wind speed increases ocean wave height and higher waves occur in shallower waters.
