Earthquake proof buildings

Today we have been busy constructing our earthquake proof buildings.  They must be at least 36cm tall, have two storeys, be able to support a 250g weight, be able to withstand an earthquake (or at least us shaking a table) and be constructed from only straws and masking tape!  The children have worked really well to overcome problems along the way and amend their designs.
