Earthquake High-Rise Project

This morning, we constructed high-rises that we put on an earthquake simulating shake table in the afternoon.
We worked in pairs again and my partner and I decided to construct a four sided tower out of popsicle sticks. We used string to help hold it together and made a platform at the top to hold the weights.
When we put them all on the shake table, ours held up very well for the first half and then the base slowly started ripping apart and it tumbled over!
