Earthquake education

‌For many years members of the Earthquake and Geotechnical Engineering group have been involved with schools running outreach activities relating to earthquake engineering. These activities include an earthquake engineering competition for school students to make model buildings that can resist earthquake forces. Students then get the opportunity to test their models on our shaking table.

‌The IDEERS (Introducing and Demonstrating Earthquake Engineering Research in Schools) website has information to support this activity which now runs as an international competition in Taiwan, and when possible in Bristol, in collaboration with local schools.
