JANUARY'S BOX - Shake It Up 🌎 http://www.groovylabinabox.com/groovy-shop/ Order by 01/31! 🌎

Design Challenge – A Lesson in Earthquakes:  You are a groovy earthquake engineer who has been contracted by the city of Los Angeles. Using only the materials from your Groovy Lab in a Box, can you design and build the tallest skyscraper that can withstand the next BIG quake?

During your ENGINEERING DESIGN PROCESS, you will investigate what causes earthquakes while constructing a groovy seismograph and shake table. Explore S and P waves, the different types of fault planes, and famous earthquake proof structures around the world. Acquire various science and engineering practices aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards, and much, much more.

Groovy Lab in a Box is hands-on STEM, project based learning made FUN!

#STEMists do the "E" in #STEM!

Engineering Design Challenge in every groovy box!
