Engineering Design- Earthquakes

Today we are engineers in the science lab and students are constructing structures that must be at least two stories tall, include a square and triangle shape and can only use thirty marshmallows and thirty toothpicks in all.  We are testing them on the earthquake table, which is a large container of jello!  After students test, they will go back to the drawing board and rethink their design if their construction does not stand through the earthquake!
