How do supertall structures stand up to wind, rain, and even earthquakes? They’re also super strong! Architects spend years designing buildings that look beautiful and stand up to the elements. Together, we’ll learn about how skyscrapers are built to be stronger than the weather, then students will take on the role of an architect and construct their own windproof towers!
