October 31


Time to get your build on! We will be running two build competitions so that everyone has a chance to compete in the builds that they wanted! We may run over a few minutes. Thank you for your patience! If we have bad weather – we’ll have to schedule a meeting on another day since we are not in school next Monday!

Bridge Building


Mystery Architecture

In this event students will be given a bag of materials to build a freestanding tower as high as they can. Only the materials in the bag and the bag itself may be used. The tower must support the weight of a tennis ball. The top of the tennis ball is the height measured. In the event of a tie the winner will be determined by who has the smallest base measurement.
