Engineering week at Scoil San Eoin-Designing earthquake resistant structures.

Children in JI/SI helped 4th/5th/6th class make jelly to form  an earthquake area base.

4th/5th/6th class planned, designed and made structures using marshmallows and jellies. They had to design structures that were earthquake resistant (tested on the jelly base). 

Children carried out tests to investigate what shape was the strongest-square/cube or triangle/pyramid.
