The builders are Japanese high school students, and the testing consists of putting increasing weights on the buildings and shaking the surface at various (and increasing) amplitude and frequency. It's great viewing, it looks like it was fun, and some surprising designs are surprisingly sturdy. And - of course - I'm a fan of hands-on problem solving like this, especially when it's combined with web streaming for all to enjoy.
