In this simple activity, learners discover how a mere piece of paper can be used to hold up the weight of a heavy book. Learners are encouraged to modify their materials, using the steps of the design process, to explore how such modification changes the amount of pressure paper can withstand. This inexpensive activity is great used with engineering or architecture units.
