TWBS Business Department Tower Construction Challenge – Screen Free Day 2021

On Wednesday, almost 100 TWBS Business students remotely took part in a tower building competition to help promote soft skills such as critical thinking and resilience within our school.

The task was simple – Build a tower out of nothing more than 5 sheets of A4 paper and a single 1m length of sticky tape which could support the weight of a single egg at its summit.

After many ingenious designs, and abject failures (Special mention must go to Year 11 student Tom Coomber – who submitted an entry of 9cm after a calamitous failure), four students took the winner, or runner up, prize in their category;

Year 10/11 Prize
1st Place – Jacob Ingels (170cm)
Runner Up – Daniel Drake (149cm)

Year 12/13 Prize
1st Place – Hasan Syed (54cm)
Runner Up – Rory Tuomey (36cm)

Each winner will be awarded 20 Uno Animo points for their house and will receive an Easter Egg on our return to school while the runners up will receive 10 Uno Animo points for their house.

Well done to all for being really good eggs.

Head of Business
