What is an Engineer?

November 18, 2015

Today Elena is here teaching us about engineering.  We’re excited she’ll be with us every 2 weeks for the rest of the term.

She challenge she brought today was to build a freestanding spaghetti tower that could hold a marshmallow the highest.  The limits were 18 pieces of pasta and 18 minutes..

Here are the results.


For more information about the marshmallow challenge, check out the ted talk.
