Newspaper Tower
What's the tallest tower you can build using only two sheets of newspaper?
Here's the challenge: getting the newspaper to stand up, without using tape, staples, glue, or other materials. But you can bend, fold, or tear the paper itself.
Make a prediction about how tall a tower you can build. What is your prediction based on?
How well does your tower withstand environmental forces? Use a fan to imitate wind gusts or shake the table gently to imitate an earthquake. How can you change your design, using 2 sheets of newspaper and 20 cm of tape, to better withstand these forces?
