Marshmallow Design Challenge - K-12 - 45-60 min session - student teams have a limited period of time (18 minutes) to build the tallest free-standing spaghetti structure that can support a marshmallow. They learn how engineers collaborate to design, test, and improve on their ideas, as well as examine hidden assumptions that can derail the creative process and final product.
Small group problem solving: "You have 2 minutes to devise a method to suspend/hold as many marshmallows above the ground as possible." Pts awarded for creativity, building design, and number of marshmallow's successfully suspended. Construction Materials 5' length of string 1 bag of large marshmallows 10 rubber bands 5 straws 10 toothpicks
