Design Challenge: Marshmallow Tower

on August 31, 2018

In our UOI, we are exploring groups and how we organize ourselves to run smoother and more efficiently. A great way to put this concept into action was to preform a team challenge during Genius Hour.

We were asked to work in a team, choose a leader and plan the best way to build the highest tower using only 25 spaghetti sticks and masking tape that could hold 1 large marshmallow on top in only 20 minutes. The real challenge was that the tower had to stand by itself!

We used the Design Process to guide us (see picture below) and we had a great discussion afterwards on how we could improve our design next time. Ms. Edwards was really impressed by the excellent communication and teamwork we used throughout this challenge. We are looking forward to many more design challenges to come this year!
