Learn about structural engineering principles, and work in teams to design and build a tower using only a specific set of materials.
We'll learn what structural engineers have to consider as they build a tower, from materials to the effects of gravity. Then students will work in teams to design and build a tower using only 30 straws, 30 paper clips and 3 feet of tape.
