Glue+Eiffel=GluEiffel !!!

The most recognizable structure in the world is Eiffel tower in Paris. 130 years now people admire it. Why? Due to its symmetry (from Greek συμμετρία symmetria "agreement in dimensions, due proportion, arrangement").

due to its symmetry it is much easy to desing it or make something that will decorate your room.

3d printing is nice but this contest is about glue so...

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

first you need to print Eiffel tower on a piece of paper ( the smaller, the less details needed)

Step 2:

put a glass frame above the paper and ...

Start pouring the glue

Step 3:

Wait a few minutes and then remover the glue from the glass. it will look like this ... (or much better!!!)

Step 4:

After making four Eiffel towers glue them together starting from their tops. continue glueing the mid eedges and finally their bottom corners.

Step 5:

Et voila the GluEiffel!

you can also put Led lights at the four conrners programmed with arduino. the light will be difused through the glue

    can't agree more with you!
    it is the first time that i participate in a contest. i said ..."why not. the chances are 25% to earn something with my idea" (till saturday evening that i sent the presentation only 36 entries were there). unfortunatelly now the entries are more than double and the chances are not with me (but the chances are with you)
    i must admit that you did much better work than me!
    i was thinking several things apart from eiffel tower. i was thinking to make cable bridges, the pyramids, lighthouses and generally symmetric constructions. i was a bit hurry (and a bit lazy) so i preffered to make eiffel tower.

    good luck my friend!

    You did a really great job too! I decided to make mine in several pieces instead of creating one tower. As a result, my tower was alightly crooked.
