 Location 3 – Potential Building Collapse in Los Angeles
Warm-Up: The Marshmallow Challenge - In eighteen minutes, teams must build the tallest
free-standing structure out of 20 sticks of spaghetti, one yard of tape, one yard of string, and
one marshmallow. The marshmallow needs to be on top.
Final Project
Take the information that you have learned to help you create a sketch of your skyscraper. Using
spaghetti noodles and marshmallows create a model of your design. Be sure that it is structurally
sound and can hold weight without breaking.
