Making earthquake proof buildings!

This week, our year 10s have been building their own earthquake proof buildings! Mrs Reynolds and Ms Hayden's year 10 classes spent time perfecting their earthquake proof architecture, using marshmallows, straws and cardboard to ensure that no earthquake, whether it was big or small could damage their fantastic buildings. Safe to say some stood longer than others!!

A few frustrated architects!

A strong marshmallow base to absorb the shocks!
