The Marshmallow Challenge


 The fabulous marshmallow bridge challenge is the perfect STEAM activity. This exercise is used to teach and develop individuals in the attributes of collaboration, innovation, and creativity. The Marshmallow Challenge reminds us that for a project to be a success, we need to identify the assumptions we are making in the project and test these early on and often.

Students will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of teamwork and failure in science and engineering
  • Understand that some shapes are stronger than others. 
  • Understand that even weak materials can be made stronger with good design techniques, and that distribution of mass is an important consideration when building a tower.
  • Understand that compression and tension affect the stability of a structure.
  • Compare their model to others to understand why some models are stronger than others.
  • Understand why engineers consider tension and compression forces when designing a building or structure.
3rd grade students enjoyed doing this project.
