Newspaper Tower

Have you ever had a challenge called Newspaper tower Challenge?We were told the instructions and that it has to be the tallest in order to be the winner but we  only had 8 minutes.

Today we came in like normal but then we put our netbooks on a table.We got some materials which were the Newspaper,scissors and masking tape. We were In groups of 4-5 you are to construct the tallest freestanding tower you can possibly make. Our group name was team Rosalina in our group there was Lani , Rosa , Venetia , Presayus.

Our time started.First we had a plan and it was to make it a triangle but it had to be standing without leaning on anything and without holding it.Then we made a base for the triangle to stay standing.

Our time was up.there were only two groups were standing that was our group and Talita’s group. Mr goodwin was finding it hard to measure the towers so we used a ruler. In the end Talita’s group won.
