Tower of Power challenges Sandburg engineers

Carl Sandburg Middle School held their annual Tower of Power night on Wednesday, February 8. Over 200 students competed in this popular annual event that challenges teams to create the tallest tower possible using only drinking straws and paper clips. The towers must support 2 tennis balls when completed. Teams also get points for creative costumes and themes, as these photos clearly demonstrate.
