Engineering Earthquake Structures: Day 4

Unit 2: Waves and Engineering: Using Waves To Meet Societal Needs and Wants
Lesson 6 of 7

Objective: Students will be able to analyze textual evidence in order to design a structure that can survive seismic waves. Students will also be able to describe the difference between an analog and digital signal.

Big Idea: Students test their prototype earthquake resistant structures, and are introduced to analog and digital signals. What's the connection of analog and digital signals to earthquakes? It's all about how waves impact our lives in the real world!
