Engineering Earthquake Structures: Day 1

Unit 2: Waves and Engineering: Using Waves To Meet Societal Needs and Wants
Lesson 3 of 7

Objective: Students will be able to analyze evidence about the properties of seismic waves and use this to design and test an earthquake resistant structure.

Big Idea: Over the course of five days, students analyze text, engage in scientific discourse, use the design process to test earthquake resistant structures, and investigate analog and. digital signals! It's all about how waves impact our lives in the real world!
