Aftershock! Earthquake Lab

Did you know that skyscrapers can withstand some types of earthquakes better than a single-story house? Learn the science of structures and seismology as you construct different kinds of buildings and then test them against the multi-speed shake table! Aftershock gives you information and materials you need to build dozens of different buildings. Once built, watch how they handle quakes of different types, magnitudes, and durations.

The 24-page illustrated activity book explains the science of tectonic plates, types of faults, seismic waves, ghost forests, sea-floor volcanoes, the causes of earthquakes, and more! You’ll also discover the engineering tricks that provide structural stability for the tallest buildings in the deadliest quake zones. The motorized, variable-speed shake table is modeled after the enormous versions that engineers use to test real structures and materials.
