Design & Technologies - Balloon Tower Challenge

Grades: 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, 5th Grade
Subjects: STEAM

Student Instructions

Materials: Balloons Tape Paper Bag Scissors In teams of 4, you need to create the highest balloon tower you can using the balloons and tape. The tower has to stand, without falling, for at least 30 seconds. Press the add button to include a picture of your final results, along with your observations. You have 30 minutes for construction. Once your construction and observations are complete, using the scissors, pop all the balloons and cut the remnants into small pieces (1-2cm), place the pieces into the paper bag and then place into the rubbish bin. The smaller the balloon pieces are, the faster they will break down. If you have time, use Google to see how long latex takes to break down.
