Grade K Lesson: Reach for the Skies
Shanghai Tower looms 128 floors tall. It is the second tallest building in the world. When engineers built it they had to make sure that its structure could support that great height. But they also had to make it capable of withstanding extremely high winds: the tower is in an area of frequent typhoons, with winds that can reach 215 miles per hour.
