Transcript of Marshmallow Challenge

Glue the Marshmallow Analysis Questions into your I.N. and answer completely.
Think about the following:
What do we do when things “fail” to go the way we planned or imagined?
What can we learn from our mistakes?
How can we communicate with others and work effectively as a team?
“Winners… don’t view failure as an end point, but as a learning point.” – Lee Burns
Lessons to be Learned…

complete the challenge.

After 18 minutes, the structure must stand
firmly on its own; it cannot be
propped up, held, or
suspended from the ceiling.
18 Minute Time Limit:

or only use a portion of
the materials provided.

will be given out in class.

tape as needed to build your structure.
