On Shaky Ground - with @Bristol

Ross, J. M. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesSchools engagement

Description

An activity called 'On shaky ground' was created to help school children engage with Engineering. The activity involved demonstrations of how tectonic plates move and cause earthquakes, how the size of earthquakes are measured, and how we design building against earthquake damage. Whilst 6 sessions were funded by the RAE the activity has now entered the permanent program at @Bristol and will continue to run with acknowledgment to the University of Bristol. The first 6 sessions were also supported and presented by University staff from Civil Engineering, Earth Sciences and an industrial partner Mott MacDonald.
