Undergraduate Students Emily Kim ’18 & Claudio Malicdem ’19 of Team ‘The Civil People’ Take Second Place in Tower of Power Competition

February 22, 2018

Congratulations to civil engineering senior Emily Kim, junior Claudio Malicdem, of team ‘The Civil People’ for winning second place at this year’s Tower of Power event!

Held annually as part of National Engineers Week at JHU, the Tower of Power event challenges teams of undergraduates, graduate students, staff, alumni, and area middle school students to engineer the tallest possible towers from uncooked pasta and marshmallows in 30 minutes. Hosted by Theta Tau, a coed engineering fraternity, this year’s event was again sponsored by Bloomberg LP.

“We decided to just build the strongest foundation possible and go from there,” Kim said.

The Civil People’s tower stretched 57 inches high.
