The Tech Challenge Final Event Day

Division: 7-8 grades
 
Building Excitement:
Seismic Engineering in Action
In the past 40 years the population of California has almost doubled, and the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that by 2025 the state’s population will increase by another 6 million people.  Like many places, the Bay Area presents a great challenge for urban planners who need to accommodate more people while making sure buildings can withstand large earthquakes. Where do we put all these people, and how do we keep them safe?
