TKMS Science Students Shake Things Up in Class

TKMS students put their engineering projects to the test on an earthquake simulator.

Clayton Wandell held his breath a little as he settled his team’s tower on the earthquake simulator.
“This should be good,” he said as his Thornapple Kellogg eighth grade science teacher Shaun Davis started the earthquake simulator, slowly, then pushed the throttle to make the shaking more significant.
It wobbled. It shook, but the tower didn’t break. Students cheered when the first structure withstood Round 1 of testing.
