John Malloy Tower-Lab Reflections Sept. 29, 2008 1. Stability was a large factor in this lab. We needed to ensure that we could reach the height limit, and also stand for 5 minutes. We could have easily made our tower taller by cutting the paper into thinner strips, but we feared that it would compromise the stability and possibly result in the tower tipping over. Another skill needed for this lab was consistency. If each of the paper rolls varied in diameter, they would not have fit together as well. Overall, I feel we did a good job with both of these aspects, and it showed in our tower.

John Malloy Tower-Lab Reflections Sept. 29, 2008 2. In preparation for the final test of our tower. All the members of our group came over to my house and we brainstormed and tested our idea. When it came to making the actual tower I had several small jobs as opposed to one major job. I was given the tasks of making a hole in the bottom of one of the cups, and securely connecting the twisties. Poking a hole in the bottom of the cup proved harder than it sounds.
