NOTE: You don’t have to get the daily newspaper to do this mini spark. Ask your neighbors, ask your teacher and/or EY Coordinator and have fun!
Challenge # 1: Build the tallest freestanding tower with only 2 sheets of newspaper and 12 inches of tape. No wedging or taping to the table or floor! You can manipulate the newspaper in any way you wish.
Challenge #2: Using 10 sheets of newspaper and 18 inches of tape, build a tower that holds a textbook 6 inches above the table for at least 3 seconds. The tower must be free-standing, which means no taping or holding to the table.
Challenge #3: Use 3 large sheets of newspaper and 24 inches of tape to make a piece of clothing that you can wear.
When you’re finished with your projects, take a picture and email it to your EY Coordinator.
