Product Description
Help inspire future engineers!

This fantastic resource guides students through the process of researching, designing, and building their own tower out of spaghetti sticks and marshmallows. Clear and informative instructions are included along with design examples, scientific explanations, and Tips & Tricks! I do this challenge every year with my students when we study forces and I am always amazed by the designs they create.

This resource can be used as a contest where students are challenged to build the highest tower possible while under a time constraint. Certificates for Tallest Tower and Most Innovative Design are included. A 2-page Student Write-up Booklet is also included. Can be done individually or in groups.
