Build­ing a con­sen­sus

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WEATHER -

ABOVE: Bradley Steiner, 8, of Chevy Chase, Md., stud­ies the place­ment of his next sup­port beam as his twin brother, Dy­lan Steiner, works be­hind him. Fam­i­lies gath­ered at the Na­tional Build­ing Mu­seum for the News­pa­per Fort Chal­lenge in the Great Hall. Par­tic­i­pants used only newsprint and tape to con­struct forts, domes and sculp­tures, while learn­ing about the tri­an­gle shape, a strong one for build­ing. RIGHT: Sis­ters Paola Salazar, 8, bot­tom left, and Ana Gabriela Salazar, 13, of Lau­rel, Md., col­lab­o­rate on their struc­ture.
