Last week at science club we were working as engineers, experimenting with uncooked spaghetti and marshmallows to create the tallest, most stable structure we could.
We learned that it is easy to create a tall structure with one piece of spaghetti and marshmallows however,to make it stand upright unassisted was tricky. After some time testing different methods and ideas we concluded that it is necessary to have supports within our buildings. Diagonal supports gave our tall structures the reinforcement they needed. Check out the photos below to see some of our creations!
