In class at the moment we have been studying natural disasters. At the end of this unit we had to create structures that could withstand an earthquake. We practices doing these by making them out of newspaper - and then on the last day we had to make structures that would hold weights and survive an earthquake out of: straws, tape, blue tack, cardboard and string. The cardboard had to be at the bottom of the structure.
Here are some photos and videos of the straw structures that we made. Enjoy and leave us some comments.
