Building for Fun

This weekend for #STEAMSunday we built a tensegrity structure from Lego.

What’s that you ask?

Check it out here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tensegrity

There are some really cool ways to build these structures, the easiest for you at home might be using Lego. We learned you need strong and stiff beams so the structure doesn’t bend and need additional weight to balance it. Use Lego chains or rope with the end studs if you have them.

If you are looking for ideas check out Lego on Twitter and the World of Engineering and tag us! We’d love to see your creations!! #AgTechSteam and tag Lego with #letsbuildtogether

Now who wants to see our creations? 🙂
