Save Wilmer the Worm!

For a quick STEM activity, students were asked to save a worm whose boat (cup) had capsized, trapping the worm on top of the overturned boat and his life vest (life saver candy) under the boat.  The students worked in teams to devise a plan to retrieve the life vest and place it on the worm without the worm falling off the cup.  The other constraint was that students could only use one hand, and must do all of this with one toothpick per team member.  There was no poking Wilbur the Worm, as he would surely perish!
