In 2010, a powerful earthquake destroyed homes and devastated communities in Haiti. Now our fictional, world-traveling brother and sister duo, Jacob and India, are there learning how to support and protect buildings to better withstand the force of an earthquake. Jacob and India guide kids as they engage in hands-on activities developing their understanding of how to engineer earthquake-resistant, model buildings. Kids will also establish building codes to help others build earthquake-resistant structures.
