Skyscraper Challenge

This Skyscraper Challenge lesson plan also includes:

The challenge: Make the tallest skyscraper you can that can also hold a filled water bottle. Oh man, that sounds tough! Lucky for you, you teach some super smart kids that love to build. In teams of four or five, the class sets out to construct a strong and tall structure out of specific materials. The trick is that they have a budget and must decide how much of each material they can buy while remaining under budget. This is a real-life design challenge that incorporates budgeting, the design process, team work, and problem solving. Amazing!
