During Science Week, BST Secondary students worked on the "Earthquakes" theme and had to build earthquake resistant buildings. By following engineering design processes in teams of 3, students first researched the causes of earthquakes. They then identified the scientific and engineering principles behind high and durable structures. The next stage was to design and build the highest possible building with limited resources provided by the Science Department. On Friday we tested students' buildings on a specifically designed robotic "Shake Table" and chose winners from amongst the highest and most durable towers.
