STEM Kit: Earthquakes

Aug 11, 2021 | Educational Connections, Kids, STEAM Adventures


Well, the small, plastic one you create on an earthquake simulator.

Our newest STEM kit is for ages 4+ and it’s all about earthquakes! Using the included plastic blocks, build your designs and crank up the earthquake simulator board to see if your building can survive.

Not sure where to start? There is an included book of ideas to get you thinking about what types of buildings do the best in an earthquake.

My own kids loved playing with the kit. It may seem simple, but it provided them with lots of fun AND helped them think like engineers.

To make the learning even more fun, we’ve included two books: Earthquakes! An Earthshaking Book on the Science of Plate Tectonics and Jump Into Science: Earthquakes.

Earthquakes! - An Earthshaking Book on the Science of Plate Tectonics.  Earth Science for Kids - Children's Earth Sciences Books: Wizard, Prodigy:  9781683239994: Books
Jump Into Science: Earthquakes: Prager, Ellen J.: 9781426328336: Books

We hope you enjoy this STEM kit. We have one Earthquakes kit available for a 3 week checkout. Currently, you can find the kit in the adult department in our Library of Things, although they will be switching very shortly to being in the Children’s Department.
