Hint ! Plan your project before you start making any models.

Here are some of the things you could do :

  • Look under Resistant Buildings to find out how buildings can be strengthened against earthquakes.

  • Use some of our Links to other web-sites to find out more about designing buildings to resist earthquakes. Also, try and find some new web-sites.

  • Visit the Model Gallery to get some ideas for different types of models.
Hint ! Don't be afraid of trying your own new ideas. An unusual model may win the IDEERS competition.
  • Prepare Sketches or Drawings of your model.

  • Keep Records of what you have done as you work through your project. They will be useful for comparing different systems you try for your model.
