Cardboard Structures

On the second day of class we worked in groups to create a cardboard structure. The structure had to hold the weight of 3 people for at least 1 minute, and stand at least 8" tall. It was a blast! Groups had to work together to brainstorm ideas about how to connect parts of the cardboard without using any tape. It wasn't long before they got to work!
Each group created a unique structure that they thought would be strong enough to hold their weight.
Then came the moment of truth...

And the moment of getting to know eachother REALLY well!
Not all of the structures passed the test, but all in all it was fun and the groups did a great job working together!
