As part of learning about earthquakes in their plate tectonics unit, sixth grade students had to design and create seismographs to measure small “earthquakes” on their desks.

They learned about constraints and prototypes as they were given limited supplies, a time limit, and had to do practice runs on their designs, then modify as needed.
