Event description

Description

We hear about earthquakes and the devastation they cause in other countries. But how do we know where they have hit or determine their severity? In this workshop with Steve Kane, students will explore the mathematics behind earthquakes and will compete to build and test the most effective earthquake-proof structures.

Please note: This workshop is strictly for 13–15 year-olds and will include a 45 minute supervised lunch break. Students will not be able to leave the building at lunch time unless permission is given at the time of booking. Students should bring lunch and a drink, pens, pencils and a calculator.

This workshop is based on an Ri Engineering Masterclass. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on summerschools@ri.ac.uk with any questions.

Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
