Eleven of my grade 6 students were involved in the Tower Building Competition last year. They have experience building these types of towers!

Q and A’s
Hey guys! I was wondering how you tested your towers for the wind test??? Kelly Priest –Digital FacilitatormCarthage Elementary/Highfalls K-8 North Carolina
We test the towers in front of a fan, typically a floor fan. It should be able to withstand the wind on medium speed. We know the fan test will not be a constant, so this won’t be part of the challenge. A reminder, we are building for height in this competition, with stability in mind.
