Inspiration

Philippines is situated along the Pacific Ring of Fire, making it prone to earthquakes. We believe a foundational understanding of earthquakes and related topics such as resonance is crucial to encourage the future scientists and engineer develop earthquake proof buildings.

Sustainable Development Goals we are Targeting

  1. Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
  2. Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  3. Goal 4: Quality Education

Forgot to update! Lizzie and I went Dollarama scavenging - our initial prototype required a lot of work. We had some delicious pizza that night though! :P

Met with a bunch of wonderful mentors (shout out to Emerson, Mayrose and Martin) who provided some very useful advice to our problems despite their busy schedules - thank you!! Hopefully we make good progress at our meeting tonight

Our first idea (barometer) was actually presented in Leo Mui's presentation! We pivoted as we were confused how to implement it but our second idea unfortunately clashed with a project previously done. Back to the drawing board for Rubber Duckies!
