Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lab - time consuming We tried this lab last year with my freshman physical science class. The intro activities were excellent and I thought it was a good addition to the class. We needed something that focused on engineering. We spent six days on the lab, doing the intro activities and building towers (the kit suggested about 3 days). Nearly all groups successfully built towers that could hold some weight. It was memorable and students enjoyed the competition.
