Throughout the process of building their creations students quickly learned of the thinking, talking, testing and re-doing that was involved. The next day they were to use the knowledge they learned to apply to a new challenge. This time they were given 20 strands of pasta and as many mini marshmallows they needed to build the strongest tower. Strength of the tower was tested by placing pennies in a cup on top. David D. and Elizabeth created the winning tower, holding 46 pennies. Impressive!
All students worked hard, learned lots and had fun!
