Design, build and test your own earthquake-safe structures with Shake & Rattle. When earthquakes happen, the ground shakes and buildings shake with it. This shake table is designed to simulate different kinds of ground movement that are observed in actual earthquakes. Architects and engineers use shake tables to test whether their buildings will remain stable during an earthquake.

Can you build a structure that stays standing through different types of shaking?
