To Be, Rather Than to Seem

Figure It Out Friday!

This new initiative in the middle school gives students a limited number of supplies and a set time to complete a challenge.

Figure It Out Friday supplies

The first mission? To build the tallest tower possible in 14 minutes that will support a marshmallow on top. Supplies included 20 sticks of spaghetti, a yard of tape, a yard of string, one marshmallow and scissors. 

Students had to think outside of the box while staying within the parameters of the challenge.

Many were disqualified for using extra resources in their attempt to reach the ceiling. Students learned important lessons on working collaboratively and communicating.

At the end of the day, two groups successfully completed the assignment.
