All supplies are provided.

Have you heard of the Leaning Tower of Pisa?  Do you know why it’s called the LEANING Tower of Pisa?  You’ll find out why as we examine some amazing engineering feats, such as the Eiffel Tower, as well as some epic failures - the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Sometimes the engineers just didn’t know any better. After all, the tower in Pisa was built almost 1000 years ago! But sometimes they did know better and were just in a rush to keep up with the competitors, such as the Firestone 500 disaster. What caused each of these to fail? You’ll investigate all of this and more as you try to make your own designs better!
