        The Skyscraper Challenge

        All buildings, and tall ones in particular, are subjected to pushing and pulling from gravity, the weight of their own parts, and natural forces like wind. Unchecked, these forces can destabilize or even topple or collapse a building. This interactive activity from the Building Big Web site challenges you to make the structural fixes needed to help some big buildings avert disaster.

        This resource can be found on the Building Big Web site.
