After their initial houses failed an earthquake test, second graders planned out, tested, and improved their earthquake-resistant house designs. Using what they know about soil and forces, they had limited materials to make sure their houses stayed standing during an earthquake. Using the engineering design process, students were allowed to improve their designs to guarantee the safety of those inside the house. Check out how creative they were with limited supplies!

Would where we live be safe if a geotechnical engineer hadn't done his/her job? I don't think so!
