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.
