Here’s a quick activity for all those pencils you may have purchased for kids going back to school; pencil towers! It’s fun and an EnGINEERING challenge too. 

All you need are pencils. 

This challenge may seem simple, but it involves some steady hands and a creative mind. The goal is to stack your pencils as high as you can without them falling over. How many can you stack in 1 minute? Or make it a challenge and see if you can build your tower higher than your friends or family members! 

We used a base that creates a box shape but feel free to get creative and design your own. 

If you try your hand at this pencil engineering, please share your towers with us on social @childmuseumwpg
