Building The Tallest Tower

By Aidan Brandt, Sophia Cosette Bloom, and Hunter Allen

Background Information
• The tallest towers in the world are the Petronas Towers.
• Buildings are made to withstand forces, such as: gravity, people inside, weight of building materials, and weather.
• Shake tables… shake. 
Question?

Will our replica towers withstand the force of a shake table, like a real tower and a earthquake?

Hypothesis
• If we put the table out of alignment by four centimeters then the towers will fall.
Materials
• Lego Bricks.
• One large Flat Lego Plate.
• Metric Ruler.
• 3- Ring Binder.
• Scissors.
• 4 Small Rubber Balls Of The Same Size.
• 2 Large Rubber Bands.
• Shake table.
Procedure 1
• Cut the front and back off a three ring binder with scissors.
• Place the 2 binder covers on top of one another.
• Rubber band the 2 together by stretching a rubber band around each end as about 1” from the edge of the board.
• Insert the rubber balls between the boards at each corner placing them about 5cm from the edges.
• The shake table should now be assembled.
• Attach a large, flat, Lego mounting plate to the top of your shake table.
• Make many towers with increasing height in the same pattern every time.
Procedure 2

8. Measure each of the towers and make a data table and fill in the table with each of the heights

9. Put the towers on the shake table, and then, shake the table. 

10. Measure how far the bricks are out of alignment and record it in your data table.
