|Building the Tallest Tower|
Skyscrapers are impressive structures. What does it take to design a building so tall? Engineers use strong materials and innovative design to push the limits of gravity. In this experiment you will use LEGO components, rubber balls, and a 3-ring binder
In this experiment you will make a shake-table to test if the height of a building will affect its stability.
The tallest buildings in the world are the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. At 1,483 feet, the Petronas Towers beat out the Sear's Tower in Chicago, which previously held the record for the tallest building at 1,454 feet (WGBH, 2000). How do engineers build buildings that tall?
