Day 1: Unique Tower Design

College-Prep Physics: While not the tallest spaghetti tower, it is a unique design that I haven’t seen in the 3 years that I’ve done the Marshmallow Challenge. Also, having each group’s materials pre-made and ready-to-go have made this the most efficient Challenge yet. In the 24-minute block, we did the 18-min challenge and had time for quick announcements and introductions. Rather than show the TED talk in class, I’ve assigned it for homework. I used a Google form, which are now capable of having YouTube videos embedded into the form. You can see it here: Marshmallow Challenge HW.
