Aftershock will bring the house down!
This is a great way to explore science, architecture and chaos. Can you stand up to the destructive force of the earthquake? Earthquakes are one of the most destructive forces in the entire world. This is your chance to put your creations to the test!
Start by designing your building, and then see if it can stand up to the earth quake – you can vary the magnitude, duration and type of earth quake that you apply to your building. And if it falls, build it again and see if you can survive for longer.
The excellent book that comes with this kit explores the different types of building and the forces that they have to withstand. Your job is to build the most successful building possible that will survive.
There is so much scope here – something that we think children will return to time and again. Well designed and with a great pay-out when you succeed!
- There are so many elements to control
- Everything collapsing is great fun – especially when the grown ups have build them
- They can find ways of succeeding!
