Today was Yoshi's first day of term. We watched a BrainPop video about skyscrapers and he decided to run with a skyscraper project that was his own idea.
First came the build.
Then it was time to subject the tower to a a little stress.
A hurricane, courtesy of my hairdryer ( out of shot ).
The tower and its sticky tape buttresses held up pretty well to our first two natural disasters, although some reinforcements were necessary after the hurricane. We pretty much went through a roll of tape.
And then came the asteroid strike. Actually, three asteroid strikes.
Hence, the Leaning Tower of Cardboard. We also had some compression issues on the ground floor. Sorry, squashed tenants. As Yoshi said, it's quite stressful being an engineer.
