AOL: Build it strong

Academy of Our Lady’s elective Engineering I class recently designed model towers for an earthquake- prone region in India. Students were asked to create an existing building and test the design on a shake table replicating an earthquake, then investigated existing solutions and methods to improve their overall design.

“This project emphasizes that engineers do not just design things – they design to improve conditions and circumstances,” engineering teacher Amy Morriss said.
