#1 Sideways Stack

This challenge is surprisingly difficult - easy initially, but it gets hard to keep the tower stable after it’s 16 or so Flockmen high.

sideways stack with Flockmen - engineering challenge

What you need:

  • 16+ Flockmen
  • A clean, flat surface such as a table top

Challenge Instructions:

  • Instead of standing the Flockmen upright, lay them down on their sides, one on top of the other.
  • Experiment with lying them directly above the other or rotating slightly, as shown in the image above.
  • Can you make a tower higher than 16? We found it tricky to keep stability and balance after 16 or 18.
