STEM in Ms. Mulcahy’s 4th Class – Marshmallow Tower

STEM is an integral part of education. Children become engineers, scientists, mathematicians while also using technology to help develop problem solving skills.

At the beginning of the year 4th Class started our STEM journey with the Marshmallow Tower. Children worked in teams to construct a tower out of spaghetti, string and masking tape. The aim is to construct the tallest tower which will hold a marshmallow at the top. Children worked on their teamwork skills. They developed their problem solving skills by assessing what worked and what didn’t in order to make the tallest tower.

It was brilliant fun and the winner was just amazing!! Well done!!
