Balancing Hex Nut Challenge

Balancing Hex Nuts

This teeter-tottering tower of hex nuts can balance on the edge of a glass, but you’ll need help from magnets.

There are a number of things that can help your balance. You could try walking with books on your hand, walking a tightrope, or taking some ballet classes. If you’re a hex nut, however, you’re going to need some help from magnets and their magnetic fields. Do you think you have the magnetism it takes to master the Balancing Hex Nut Challenge?


  • 4 soda cans
