An earthquake is what happens when two blocks of the earth suddenly slip past one another. The surface where they slip is called the fault or fault plane. The location below the earth’s surface where the earthquake starts is called the hypocenter, and the location directly above it on the surface of the earth is called the epicenter. (USGS 2023)
The Engineering Design Process helps us figure out problems and solve them like engineers. Today you will use this process to create the tallest structure you can using dots and toothpicks like the examples below.
