Day 8: Object Lesson

On Friday morning, at a professional development in Park City, each of our groups was given a deck of cards and told we had 15 minutes to try to build the tallest tower. About 11 minutes in our group was going strong when our possibly-tallest tower collapsed (my fault). With nothing to lose, we threw caution and our sense of structural engineering to the wind, and in 4 minutes we had a tower taller than any of the 15-minute towers in the room. I feel like there's a moral or two to that story.

I'm a fan of this story! Especially since I would probably be the one freaking out post-original tower collapse. :) Well done tower team!
