Tensegrity Tower

Posted by Jackie on November 15, 2008

This exhibit was amazing – the wires were pulled taught, and kept the structure of the tower together (unsupported by anything other than the wires) whilst also keeping the rods apart.

Science is fantastic! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Interesting. Don’t you just want to pull ut apart to investigate it though?

    Oooh, fun! I wonder if the cables will be able to support an adult’s weight? That’s too tempting!

    I do love places like this. They make everyone want to be a scientist…until you get in the classroom and realize what you REALLY have to do with that stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚ If I ever visit Glasgow, I’ll definitely stop at this place.
