Huje Tower 2
Stretch your engineering skills with this free online physics game. Can you design structures such as towers and bridges to complete each level?
Instructions: Drag and drop the Hujes to create your structures. Don’t use too many in your structure as some will need to stay free to make it to the exit on each level.
Learning objective: In playing this game students will develop an awareness of designing structures to suit requirements. They will develop their awareness of the impact of gravity as well as factors such as flexibility and rigidity.
(i) What does the term ‘flexibility’ mean?
(ii) What happened to your towers if they were too flexible?
(iii) The oppose of ‘flexible’ is ‘rigid’. When designing a tower what did you do to make it more rigid?
