Why Do Buildings Fall in Earthquakes?

Students find out how and why earthquakes affect buildings and how the impact on buildings can be reduced by viewing the Why Buildings Fall in Earthquakes video. The role of mass, resonance, stiffness, and oscillation in building design are explored. This resource could be part of a project in which students design their own earthquake-resistant buildings.
