Newspaper Tower - Activity -

They are given limited supplies including newspaper, tape and scissors, paralleling the real-world limitations faced by engineers, such as economic restrictions as to how much material can be used in a structure. Students aim to build their towers for height and stability, as well as the strength to withstand a simulated lateral "wind" load. Engineering Connection Students act as civil engineers as they design and build newspaper towers.
