Top Builder: Newspaper Power | Design Squad


Hey, it’s Nate
fromDesign Squad.We’re challenging you to make
an awesome structure, sculpture, anything you want
out of two materials: newspaper and masking tape. Show us what you’ve made, put it
up on theDesign Squadwebsite, and see if you can get featured
as a top builder. I’m trying to make
a set of stilts. Now, they’re short stilts,
but I think it’ll be fun. Now, I rolled it up so they’ll be strong to stand on
in this direction, just like a column
supports a building. Now of course,
I’ve got to make handles so I can have it
move along with me as I walk. For this top builder challenge,
you can build anything you want. It might be a paper table,
a chair, a sculpture of a building, but it just needs to be
structurally sound. That means sturdy–
it won’t fall down easily. Hopefully my stilts
are structurally sound enough not to collapse
when I step on them. What do you think?
Is it gonna hold? I definitely want to ease into
this so I don’t step off-axis and have them crush to the side
on the first step. Moving off the table… Standing on stilts only… Balancing… They’re totally working! (snapping noise) Oh, there it is! And now it’s your turn. Design and build a newspaper
structure, take a picture and upload it to theDesign
Squadwebsite. We’ll post a selection
of the designs to the website and visitors
will be able to vote on who they think
the next top builder is.
