Get Learning: Newspaper towers

Wednesday 18th December 2019

Split your young people into groups and challenge them to design and construct model towers out of newspaper. They are given limited supplies including newspaper, tape and scissors, paralleling the real-world limitations faced by engineers, such as economic restrictions as to how much material can be used in a structure. The aim is to build their towers for height and stability, as well as the strength to withstand a simulated lateral “wind” load.  

Give it a go with your young people and share photos by using
@theboysbrigade or #boysbrigade.
