Marshmallow Challenge


It was an amazing day at PCS-Joslin.  We welcomed Alyse Kondrat, the director of Science Product Development at Pearson, to our classroom!   Ms. Alyse challenged the girls to build a structure from spaghetti and one marshmallow!   The girls really enjoyed building the structures.  Ms. Alyse informed us that the average height of a structure built out of spaghetti nation wide (including CEO’s, engineers, college students, and kindergartners) is 20″.  Most of our girls did above the average–the highest one was 35.5″!
