Skyscrapers   Skyscrapers Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
This Activity should be done Inside.
2 or 3 sheets of regular paper for each patrol
pair of scissors for each patrol
one quarter, 50cent, or dollar coin for each patrol
a tape measure to determine height
Your patrol has been hired by a very impatient multi-billionaire to design the world's tallest skyscraper. This skyscraper will have a heavy helipad on top for his personal use. The client that hired you wants a model built in the next 15 minutes to show off your design.

Each patrol designs and creates a skyscraper and places their coin on top. It must remain standing with no other support. They may use only the paper for construction materials - no tape or string or anything else.
Scouts need to be respectful of the working space of other patrols and not create wind currents, vibrations, or other interference.

You could have a reward, possibly the winning patrol receives all the coins.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
