Wichita State University is going help build a tower for the city of Wichita. Wichita wants the strongest and tallest tower to be displayed in the downtown area. The future engineers of the SEEDS program have been challenged to design this tower for Wu and the city of Wichita, KS. The winning design will need to be structurally sound and withstand everyday wear and tear.
This will require good management of materials and time. Participants will be placed in teams and they will be competing against other teams for the winning design. The team that builds the tallest tower that can hold the most weight on the top of the tower will be the winner for the day. This activity will require proper documentation of the engineering process and stretch the creativity and imagination of the designers.
