Abstract The Tower of Pulp was a project that our group worked on and constructed on the twenty-third of January. This project consisted of our group of five engineers creating a tower as tall as humanly possible which could withstand hurricane-force type winds. The team with the highest tower that could withstand the winds of the hurricane would go on to receive a contract with an engineering company. This project was challenging because we were pressed for time and for resources. Our group was given only eight pieces of paper, tape, and scissors to abstractly construct into this type of tower, where the hurricane-force winds were simulated by a stationary fan. The limited resources were not the only challenge that our group came across. We were given a time period of twenty minutes, but the catch was that we could only talk for the first four minutes and for the minutes between ten and twelve. This forced our group to work well as a team and to really understand what our goals were so that we could achieve them and win the contract. We created a sturdy base of paper and a thin tower that was quite tall. When placed up against the faux-hurricane winds our tower did not fall, but it was forced to slide across the table. Therefore we were not as successful with our project than expected.

Introduction The Tower of Pulp was a project that required our group to construct a tower composed of eight pieces of paper. This tower was supposed to be built as tall as we possibly could, but still sturdy enough to withstand the simulated winds. This project was not as simple as it looked. We were not only given limited supplies, but time restraints
