How to Play:
Set a timer for 15 minutes. Using only the materials above, build the tallest freestanding structure possible. Whoever’s structure is the tallest when the timer goes off wins!
Optional: Share a picture of your structure and a summary of how this activity connects to civil engineering in our Student Showcase to build your resume!
