One the first STEM challenges we completed this year was to build a spaghetti tower. Students had to build the tallest tower that held a marshmallow for 10 seconds.
Their building constraints were:
1) They only had 20 minutes, 2) They only had 10 strands of spaghetti 3) 3 feet of tape 4) 2 feet of string 5) Scissors and a ruler.
Here are the results!
