Join Engineering students from the University of Waterloo as we explore engineering concepts for youth!

How do engineers design a building to withstand an earthquake? Participants will learn all about seismic waves and the engineering design cycle as they attempt to build a structure stable enough to withstand an earthquake. Participants will then test their structures on their very own ‘seismic shaker’.
