Transcript of CSI Marshmallow challenge

The Marshmallow challenge by Tom Wujec Challenge The 20 Sticks spaghetti 1m tape 1m string 1 marshmallow + + + Rules The Simple activity
deep lessons Lesson one: Prototyping maters 1. Build the tallest FREESTANDING structure: 2. The ENTIRE marshmallow must be on top: 3. Use as much or as little of the kit: 4. Break up the Spaghetti, String or Tape: 5. The challenge lasts 18 minutes: Questions before we start? The winning team is the one that has the tallest structure measured from the table top surface to the to of the marshmallow. That means the structure cannot suspend from a higher structre, like a chair, ceiling or chandelier. The entire marshmallow needs to be on the top of the structure. Cutting or eating part of the marshmallow disqualifies the team. The team can use as many or as few of the 20 spaghetti sticks, as much or as little of the string or tape. The team cannot use the paper bag as part of their structure. Teams are free to break up the Spaghetti, cut the tape and string to create new structures. Teams cannot hold on to the structure when the time runs out. Those touching or supporting the structure at the end of the exercise will be disqualified. Typical process: Who consistently performs poorly? Who consistently performs well? Why? Prototype Refine We need to identify the assumptions in our project -
the real customer needs, the cost of the product, the duration of the service, etc. and
test them early and often!
Lesson two: That's the mechanism that leads to effective innovation!
