Me, (Liam Gutierrez), Kristina Griffin, Isaiah Jackson, Isaiah Lira, and Taylor Loui had to build a strong structure in order to make it hold 2 Rubik's Cubes.
The building wasn't easy, but what made it harder, were the constraints. We only had 50 cards, 2 feet of tape, and only 45 minutes to make the building happen. The building had to be as tall as we could make it and still be able to hold 2 Rubik's Cubes.
It wasn't at all easy, but we just managed to squeeze through.
Design, Problems, and Cost
Our building strategy originally was a Card Pyramid. We thought it would work because we had seen Card Pyramids before work very well before. When we built a small model, we saw that it was unstable. We also noticed that it would take a lot of cards and tape. We abandon the design.
We used paper, pencils, drawing supplies, scissors, 2 feet of tape, Rubik's cubes, and index cards.
We found out that rectangular shaped boxes worked very well, thus, our abundance of using it.
What Steps Did We Take in Order to Finish the Tower?
What we decided into doing was a rectangular structure. First, we started with a rectangular prism design. We used as little supplies as possible in order to have index cards to make it taller. It was one of the tallest builds in the room until it fell. We rushed in order to turn something in.
