Engineering Towers

Sessions 1-7

In sessions 1-7 I learned of some of the basic designs and techniques of modern day support towers. In session one I was given the basic outline of how to build my tower. I will be using twenty feet of balsa wood sticks and a bottle of green glue. The tower can only be eight inches tall so I measured my sticks before cut them. I created all outlines for all three sides of my tower, but I used too much glue so when i pulled it up it broke. Make sure you don't use to much glue on your tower so it doesn't brake when you pull it up off the plastic. By the end of session seven you should have a tower that is ready to be tested on how big of a load it can hold.
