Creative Science Challenge: Leaning Tower

We enjoy the occasional creative science challenge.  For this challenge each child had a bunch of straws, a little clay, and a measured piece of masking tape.   They had a time limit to build the tallest structure possible.
Little girl had her structure built first.  Once she declared she was done, I measured the height.

The boys attempted to beat her height before time ran out.  In the last few minutes my younger son finished a stable structure that was about 12 inches higher.


  1. Oh how fun! I’m totally trying this!

  2. This looks like it was fun. Thanks for sharing! I’m going to try this for my boys.
