RAHWAY—Students from the third grade Gifted and Talented program at Roosevelt School in Rahway recently attended the Edith Mayner Brain Bowl 2009.
Teams were challenged to build the tallest structure using only newspaper, dowel sticks, and masking tape. The key to building a structure was to make weak and flimsy newspaper strong by rolling newspaper dowels. Masking tape was used to attach the rolled newspaper. Students realized a wide base at the bottom would distribute the weight over a wider area and make the structure more stable. The teepee architectural structure won.
