Earthquake Protection

SANDCREEK MIDDLE SCHOOL • Idaho

Project Information

Sandcreek Middle School’s project is to understand the effects of earthquakes in their area and how they can prepare for future earthquakes. Southeast Idaho is rich in geologic history. Students will research the history of earthquakes and damage in the region, and then compare earthquake safety measures in California and Japan to their own safety measures. Then students will construct a model to test on an earthquake table to show how their modifications can reduce damage in an earthquake.
