Day 8: An easy dorm function: paper towers

I do duty once a week on a freshman boys’ dorm, and tonight, we did a quick engineering game where each student tried to build the tallest possible tower from 1 m of tape and a single piece of paper. The finish was quite dramatic, as two of the three towers collapsed in the final seconds, leaving this sole survivor.
