The Spaghetti Marshmallow Challenge

14th September 2019

Year 3 have just completed their first challenge of the year!  They were asked to work in groups to build the tallest freestanding tower they could in 30 minutes.  They were only allowed to use the following materials:
  • 20 pieces of spaghetti
  • 1 marshmallow
  • 1 metre of string
  • 1 metre of tape
The children worked brilliantly together to plan their construction and all of them managed to build a tower, though not all freestanding! 
The winning group successfully completed a freestanding tower measuring 45 cms. 
Well done everyone!
