Pawling Central School District

Pawling High School:​​ To conclude the unit on Earthquakes and Plate Tectonics, Ms. Von Burg’s 10th grade Earth Science students researched and created an earthquake resistant building design which was later tested on the Shaker Table (resembling a moderate earthquake). Using STEAM and engineering practices, students developed and created a model, reflected and redesigned the model after testing, and then connected knowledge gained to outside real-world applications.
