Spaghetti and Marshmallow Bridges!
Date: 9th Nov 2019 @ 2:35pm
For our Connected Curriculum launch on 'Why does the world need great inventions?' The children worked in teams of 3-6, to create a bridge using only Spaghetti and Marshmallows.
The rules they had to abide by were:
- You can ONLY use spaghetti and marshmallows
- You cannot use resources from other tables
- Your bridge can be any design
- EVERYONE in your team must work together
- You have 20 minutes
When their time was up, we tested each bridge to see if it could hold the weight of a toy car for 10 seconds, without falling over and without anyone touching it. If your team succeeded, you earnt yourself five house points each!
I am delighted to announce that every team managed to create an bridge that held the weight of the toy car. They all worked well together, and tested a variety of designs.
Which was your favourite bridge design?
