Marshmallow and Spaghetti buildings to withstand an earthquake 2

In the Geology club this half of term we have been looking at different rock types and how they are formed, the formation of fossils and natural disasters that can occur because of plate tectonics. The challenge that the children were given was to construct a building that could withstand an earthquake using spaghetti and marshmallows! We tested the theory by rocking the table for 10 seconds. The club is a mixture of J1 to J5 pupils.

Miss Shelley said ‘We had such fun taking part in this task, the pupils showed excellent team-work and competitive spirit. It is so gratifying to see so many pupils of such a broad age range, showing a keen interest in the make-up, evolution and movement of the earth.’
