Event Type: 

House of Cards

Summary: Build various architectural shapes out of cards to discover which will create the most stable structure!

Students will learn about the concepts of tension and compression. They will then be asked to choose a geometric shape and then construct a building of note cards that only uses the chosen shape. Each building will be tested to determine how much weight it can sustain. Students will then be able to discuss which geometric shapes are the most stable.
