Challenge #7 Building for wind!

Hello all and welcome to challenge #7! Video below and Liz's tower at the very bottom!


Your challenge is to use materials to build a house/structure strong enough to withstand wind!


Watch: Vista Tower in Chicago - How does this structure handle strong winds? Video here

Supplies:

Paper (any kind)

Sticks (popsicle, coffee stirrers, pens, pencils, straws)

Tape and scissors

Fan (or someone willing to blow down your house!)

Extensions:

* Use only 4 or 6 sticks

* Build at least 12 in high

* Try adding a blow-through floor - does it make a difference in your design?
