Spaghetti Tower Challenge

Is it possible to take something brittle and something soft and combine them to make them strong?

This is exactly what P5/6 have been attempting to discover by undertaking a 'Spaghetti Tower Challenge'. So, how does this work?


Take something brittle - Spaghetti.

Take something soft - Marshmallow.

Build a tower as tall as possible and strong enough to support an egg.

And how did the experiments work out?

See the photo gallery below.

And for a little more detail on the activity see the PDF.
