I'm an engineer... get me out of here!

Published on 21/03/17

How tall can you build a tower with just five pieces of newspaper and a metre of masking tape?

That was the task for Year 9 students who took on the challenge as part of I'm An Engineer, Get Me Out Of Here!

The Senior School is one of nearly 50 schools around the country interacting with engineers across three different zones - ampere, artificial body and robotic zones.

The engineering challenge was set by Science teacher Susan Passmore and saw students working together to get their towers as tall as they could using only newspaper and masking tape.
