Maker Camp: Tensegrity Towers with Bill Gurstelle

Week 3, Theoretical Thursday at Maker Camp. Today we’re going to be learning about tension, by building a “tensegrity tower” sculpture from dowels and stretch cord that seems to defy the laws of physics. When we’re done, we’ll have a system of wooden dowels that float in the air.

Maker Camp, sponsored by MAKE magazine, was a virtual summer camp for teens, with a focus on creating, building, and discovering.From July 16th through August 24th, 2012, 30 awesome projects were made in 30 days, on Google+. Maker Camp is free and open to all.
