DIY Eiffel Tower

During the 1889 World’s Fair, there was a competition for architects and designers to see who could design a 300-meter tall tower, (that’s over 1000 feet!) with a base of only 125 meters across or 400 feet. Gustave Eiffel’s design was the winner and the tower was named after him. The tower itself is a triangle and throughout its design, you can see many triangles, one of the most stable shapes in nature. Build your own Eiffel Tower and test it for stability!
