Wednesday, March 1 – 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm (ish)

CHALLENGE: construct a tower out of nothing but corrugated cardboard and craft sticks. NO GLUE – NO TAPE – use only slits cut into the corrugated cardboard and your imagination. This is an exercise in learning the limits and capabilities of materials. Ask yourself these questions…

What combination of cardboard and wood will yield the greatest strength in a particular direction?

What geometric shapes can be constructed and then joined to yield the greatest strength?

What will look cool?
