Science Projects to Make a Model of an Earthquake Proof House

The Shake, Rattle and Roll science project challenges students to build three separate house examples using index cards, straws, tape and paper clips. The first house addresses building issues in high-impact areas. The student builds a house that is short and wide for greater stability or a tall building that has a wide base and a narrow top.

Earthquake Safe Building - PBL FInal Project

Earthquake-safe Building. My earthquake-safe building is base-isolated so the shock of the earthquakes would be absorbed and it won’t shake as much. It also has an automatic water shut off in case a water pipe or valve bursts or breaks so the house doesn’t flood. Another feature it has is that it’s made out of triangles so it is more sturdy and supportive. Of course even with all of ...

The Science of Earthquakes - USGS

When an earthquake causes the ground to shake, the base of the seismograph shakes too, but the hanging weight does not. Instead the spring or string that it is hanging from absorbs all the movement. The difference in position between the shaking part of the seismograph and the motionless part is what is recorded. How do scientists measure the size of earthquakes? The size of an earthquake ...
