Paper tower ppt
We can… 
Identify which designs can and cannot withstand the 
self-weight of the newspaper tower as well as a 
lateral wind load. 
Explain how their towers worked to withstand the 
self-weight and lateral wind load
The Plan 
Create as tall a tower as possible with only paper, 
scissors and tape. 
You will have a time limit of 15 minutes for preliminary 
building and 10 minutes for the final build.
Real World Application 
Your task mirrors the challenges that engineers are 
given in the real world—with objectives, 
requirements and constraints such as budgets, 
material limitations and deadlines. 
When you are brainstorming about your design 
approach in your teams, think about the real 
skyscrapers you have seen as inspiration. What are 
their shapes? What are their foundations like?
Ideas
Vocab 
buckling: When a column fails by bending at some 
point in the height of the column, usually towards the 
midpoint caused by a vertical force. 
lateral force: A force that impacts a structure 
horizontally (that is, wind and earthquakes). 
deflection : The amount a structure bends or moves 
from its "at rest" position.
Think Pair Share 
Explain how your towers worked to resist the 
"wind" load. 
What designs did and did not work and why that 
was so? 
Vocab: Lateral Force Deflection Buckling

Editor's Notes

  1. Students act as civil engineers as they design and build newspaper towers. They must pay particular attention to designing the tower to withstand the forces of high winds, a problem that students may not have considered in the construction of tall buildings.
