Dried spaghetti and marshmallows


Working with spaghetti and marshmallows (2)

As part of the afternoon curriculum and in a race against the clock, students at Seabrook campus worked as a team to build the highest tower possible out of dried spaghetti and marshmallows. The objective of this lesson was to explore structures and investigate what methods of building can make the tallest and strongest structure. By testing their prototype buildings, students had the opportunity to rebuild and alter their designs to improve them, giving them an insight into the real-life processes of testing, redevelopment and prototyping that engineers and scientists use.
