Marshmallows, spaghetti and a potato

The last Extended thinkers challenge was a real doozy.  Students had to build the highest structure they could using a packet of spaghetti and a bag of marshmallows.  The structure also had to hold the weight of a potato at its highest peak.  Teams also had to design a new challenge with an accompanying set of instructions.

Once again, Ellesmere drew top prize.  The video conference is available to view below.  I have also included Ellesmere’s slideshow which takes you through the whole process.  Great job guys.
