Tower Destruction
Students will record the mass of their tower and then suspend ever increasing mass from the tower until it collapses. Students will record the mass that the tower held and then use the information to calculate the tower's efficiency.

Thursday

Tower Destruction (con't)
Students will record the mass of their tower and then suspend ever increasing mass from the tower until it collapses. Students will record the mass that the tower held and then use the information to calculate the tower's efficiency.

Friday

Skyscraper challenge!
In teams of up to four, students are challenged to use what they have learned about forces and structural support to build a model skyscraper of at least 50 cm in height that will support a minimum of 3 kg, or 3000 g. Students will also create a drawing of what the finished skyscraper would look like in real life and create a presentation detailing important information about their model including the mass of the model, its actual height, the type of bracing structure used in the model, the cost of the model, and any other design elements added to the model.

Note: this is an ongoing project. All elements of this project are due Friday, February 8, 2019.
