OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry), Auditorium 1945 S.E. Water Ave., Portland, OR 97214

Recent scientific “discoveries” have uncovered a revolutionary new building material that could change how we prepare for earthquakes – gingerbread! Come to OMSI and learn how buildings are designed to withstand quakes. Design, build and test your own quake proof gingerbread building. Put your tower on OMSI's shake table to see if it will survive "the Big One."

This workshop is suggested for all ages.

Foodstuffs in this lab will include common allergens such as wheat, soy and eggs.
