Iris Lim's Open House Smore
By Iris Lim
In this project, we had to construct a structurally sound house for Tony Stark to live in using limited supplies. We were only allowed to use 20 toothpicks, 10 straws, 20 popsicle sticks, and string. I worked with Miranda, Kaitlyn, Hailey, and Emma. Our design had clay holding straws and popsicle sticks together. We had straws going across the walls. We put toothpicks in the straws to make them stiffer. We also had to complete an interview, which is included below. By completing this project, I learned how structural engineers must think and how to build with minimal supplies.
