Product Description
Get your students excited about STEM!

This real-world exploration activity asks the question: using only 50 straws and one yard of masking tape, can you construct the tallest straw tower, which free stands for 10 seconds?

Students participate in hands-on inquiry and open-ended exploration as they try to determine which skyscraper design yields the tallest, free standing structure.
