As part of their plate tectonics unit, Year 6 were asked to design and build their own earthquake-proof structure.

After a period of researching and developing their ideas, Year 6 got straight into the construction phase producing some intriguing results using a combination of spaghetti, marshmallows, springs, toilet rolls, plasticine and lots of tape!

Thank you to Henrietta, Herbert, Michael, Henry, Edward, Sam, Eve, Millie, Summer and Ralph for their images and to Kate, for the video of her building surviving a minor earthquake.
