Earthquakes can damage or destroy man-made structures. EMS 8th grade students have been asked to design a skyscraper that will be built in a city where earthquakes sometimes occur. In this STEM stimulation students used spaghetti noodles, masking tape, and marshmallows to create a 35cm+ structure which can withstand the punishing pounding of our earthquake simulator. Five teams surpassed the field in having the most successful structures.
