Workshop: Quakecraft, learning resilience and engineering through a hands-on building design programe
Bridget McKendry, Brandy Alger
In this workshop you will design and build a resilient house model out of the kit of fabricated parts provided, in the form of 2 timed and scored challenges. The final houses will be tested on the shake table wth 3 different "earthquakes", to see if the engineering and design concepts work. There will also be a short presentation on how we ran the programe first in post-quake Christchurch, New Zealand, then around the country, incorporating input from local iwi (Maori tribes).
