Towers in the Wind!

In our “Testing and Building” science unit, students were given a challenge to use what they’ve learned to design and build at tower that was at least 70cm in height.  It not only needed to be stable enough to stand on it’s own, but to stay standing while there was a wind blowing on it. Some students had to redesign or adjust their designs several times to make it work, so we sure learned a lot from this project!
