Construction Design Intro
These are resources for our start-of-semester activity using The Marshmallow Challenge. We also discussed "Intel announces Edison: a 22nm dual-core PC the size of an SD card" (from CES 2014) and introduced TED Talks.
Discuss with others at your table how you want to approach our modified Marshmallow Challenge activity.
Do the Marshmallow Challenge with these rules:
Get 20 pieces of spaghetti, 1 yard of masking tape, 10 mini-marshmallows, and 1 yard of string.
When the timer starts, you will have 18 minutes to build the tallest tower you can with your group. You MUST have at least 3 mini-marshmallows at the top of your structure.
After time is up, we will take photos of each group's structure and discuss our lessons learned.
