Description

Can your structure take the pressure? The Tower Crusher enables students to answer that question and challenges them to explore ways to increase the endurance of their paper structures. Students build a structure from ordinary printing paper and set up the crusher stand. The strength of the structure is evaluated by adding mass to the bottle until the structure fails.
