Broomstick Challenge! Make a Super Stable Structure Using Only String and Tape

In Courageous at Home, STEM Studio by Ashton Wollett

It seems simple, but it can be trickier than you’d think! Figure out the best ways to keep a broomstick standing upright, and learn some key engineering and math concepts about lines, the power of triangles, and why the mast of your boat doesn’t fall down (kind of important!). Geared for grades 3-8, but all ages are welcome.
