Marshmallow Challenge

The Marshmallow Challenge was an opportunity for us to use our Mathematical skills to design a Marshmallow tower. Where we sketched our ideas and worked as a team to make a tower out of spaghetti and marshmallows. When we had built our tower we tested it to see if it could hold a big marshmallow.

We were split into three teams, our house groups, Auchinleck, Strule and Crevenagh. The overall winners were the Crevenagh team: Katie Telford, Alex Edwards, Lewis Smyth, Chloe Jayne Wilson, and Abbie McKinley.
