Ever heard of Pangea? We’ll go back in time to learn about the moving plates that have shaped the continents we know and live upon today. We’ll learn what happens when plates move against each other, including earthquakes and volcano formation—we’ll even observe a volcano demo! We’ll talk about how earthquakes are measured (and try our hand at using a homemade seismograph), and how we can engineer around earthquakes before we attempt to make earthquake-proof model houses and put them to the test on a shake table!
