Marshmallow Challenge - Strategic Thinking
Transcript of Marshmallow Challenge - Strategic Thinking
20 sticks of spaghetti
1 yard of tape
1 yard of string
Build the Tallest Freestanding Structure:
The winning team is the one that has the tallest structure measured from the table top surface to the top of the marshmallow.
That means the structure cannot be suspended from a higher structure, like a chair, ceiling or table.
The Entire Marshmallow Must be on Top:
The entire marshmallow needs to be on the top of the structure.
Cutting or eating part of the marshmallow disqualifies the team.
Use as Much or as Little of the Kit:
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.
Break up the Spaghetti, String or Tape:
Teams are free to break the spaghetti, cut up the tape and string to create new structures.
The Challenge Lasts 18 minutes:
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.
kids spend more time playing and prototyping
Spend a vast
amount of time planning
With little or no time to fix design
