Summary:Have you ever been in an earthquake? What did it feel like? Did you jiggle back and forth? Up and down? Was there a jolt? Or a rolling motion? Come build a house Hansel and Gretel would love to eat, a special table to shake it on, and see how different soil types can amplify shaking. In this science fair project, you will determine which type of soil amplifies side-to-side earthquake shaking motion the most.
