Sculpting Paper

Split into groups, we were given a few hours to create the tallest structure we could, constructed using 3 Newspapers. I worked with Sam and Jesse, and together we talked through our ideas before deciding the best idea was to create the structure from tubes of newspaper, like scaffolding. An hour into the session we realized the paper was far too weak to support a structure more than a few feet tall. We rethought our idea, and decided on creating very thin, tightly rolled poles of paper, from which we made three very tall poles. These were tied together with more supports added.

At the end of the day we came second, our structure beaten by just a few feet. Still our pole lasted till the end of the day without collapsing, and was far higher than I had first imagined we could create.
