I Group students found yet another re-use for our pizza boxes this week in the “Leaning Tower of Pizza” Challenge. Each student received half of a pizza box and one meter of masking tape with the goal of constructing the tallest freestanding tower using the fewest resources. Students could “purchase” additional tape for the price of having 5 cm. of height/purchase deducted from their final measurement. Scissors, cardboard cutters, and rulers were provided.
Congratulations to all participants for their ingenious designs!
