Fifth Grade Uses STEAM for the Spaghetti Tower Marshmallow Challenge

  • Spaghetti Tower Marshmallow Challenge

    Fifth Grade STEAM Project

Mrs. Nagler's Fifth Grade students used their problem solving and teamwork skills to build a spaghetti tower that can balance a marshmallow. Students had just twenty minutes to work together to construct the tower with only the materials provided: one yard of masking tape, one yard of string, 20 sticks of spaghetti, and one marshmallow. The marshmallow had to be on top of the tower when time was called and the tower must be standing unassisted.

This project used the STEAM approach to successfully complete and required creativity, innovation, and thinking outside the box, but also being able to develop a plan and execute it as a team.
