Straw tower game

One of the most relaxed classes I taught was one which involved...

... playing with straws!

I had groups of four to five people collaborating to build the tallest tower using the same number of straws within the same given timeframe. This game provided a chance for the students to practice their teamwork, communication skills, and creativity skills to not just make their towers look good but also to balance the structure in a manner that enables it to withstand the height.

Now, who says uni has to be boring? :P
