February 26, 2016

At 2:11 pm, the club's president, Austin, introduced a design competition scheduled for that day. Members were to get into groups of 2-3 and design a tower (using no more than 10 pieces of paper, 2 ft of tape, and 5 rubber bands) that could hold up at least 1 textbook. The towers had to be at least 15 inches tall. 

Two teams hard at work on their paper towers.


After approximately 1.5 hours, the testing and judging of the towers began. Only two towers were able to hold 1 textbook. Congratulations to Austin Djang and his cylindrical tower, as well as Ilya Kravchenko and Sean Allen's five-columned construction. 
Five columns design by new members Ilya & Sean.

After a brief discussion on projects for the next club meeting (involving designing constructing towers using 3-D printing), the meeting was officially adjourned at 3:56. As always, members were encouraged to stick around. We look forward to seeing everybody in two weeks.
