Today was the primary construction day for the Straw Towers competition. Groups had to be able to store their towers in a disassembled form, so most are constructing modular towers.
As you can see, the primary building material is straws.
Although, some groups are making use of some less conventional tower-building materials.
Towers are beginning to take shape, and they each have their own unique qualities: like little straw snowflakes.
The conclusion of the Straw Towers Face-Off will be held on September 15th. Stay-tuned for the information on the winning teams and pictures of completed towers in action!
