Quake-Proof Housing

For our most recent project based assessment in science students had to create earthquake resistant structures. Students used their textbook and researched the web to find materials and design elements.  The final product had to include at minimum a sketch of the building and guidelines for the builder. Most students had an additional slide show or 3D model to help illustrate their points.  One group went above and beyond and made a cake as their model, and another used Google SketchUp.  Impressive!
