Grade 2 Lesson: Surviving Storm Surge

In the film Dream Big, we see how engineers create innovative ways for tall buildings like the tower of Shanghai to resist strong winds from typhoons. However, most of the damage occurs before and after the storm, when waters rapidly flood coastal areas. Buildings must have a strong enough base to resist the powerful, swiftly flowing water. In this engineering challenge, students investigate ways to engineer buildings that resist flood waters.
