Y7 Earthquake Projects

19th Dec 2019 – Our Y7 pupils have been studying the key features of earthquake-proof buildings. They were tasked to become architects themselves: they had to design and present their own earthquake-proof towers. These are some of them – well done year 7!

Matilda Munnelly of 7S tells us that “key features would be to have your furniture bolted to the walls, shatterproof windows, computer-controlled weights on the roof to balance the building, and bendable metal frames so that if the building shakes, it will keep the building in place”.
