Building Oreo Towers: STEM Engineering Challenge
April 30, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
Youtube Livestream @ 11:30 PST – https://youtu.be/lmj7y1CFFW0
Calling all structural engineers! We’ve got a seriously sweet challenge ahead of us.
Today, we’re going to be seeing who can build the tallest tower of Oreos.
Easy, right? Not so fast… you better believe there’s going to be a twist to this so come join us to see how you stack up.
Thursday: Engineering with Oreos (Physics/Engineering)
Activity: Stack the highest tower, or build the strongest tower.
Test your problem solving and balancing skills in this frustratingly simple engineering project! See how many Oreos you can stack on top of just a few paper triangles.
Printouts (optional – but one has the template to make the paper triangles)
Cardstock/thin cardboard cut in 1in by 3in strips (if not using the printout)
Scotch or masking tape
