Engineering is a process used to solve problems by designing, building and testing things. An engineer is a person who uses math and science to create new things, solve problems or make things better. Some engineers work to build structures or buildings. A structure is the result of building or constructing something by arranging materials or parts. How a structure or building is designed can affect how safe and durable it is. An apex is the highest point of something. In this activity, the apex is the tallest point on a tower.
