Year 2 - DT Investigation
Can you build the tallest and strongest tower?
Made Towers using spaghetti sticks and Marshmallows.
The size of the Marshmallows and the length of the uncooked spaghetti sticks.
Towers will fall down if structures are not strong enough.
Square-Based Towers will have the strongest structure.
Big Marshmallows will be too heavy for the top. Longer spaghetti sticks will give towers the strongest structure.
We found out:
Triangular-Based towers have the strongest structure.
Big Marshmallows are too heavy for the top of the structure.
Shorter spaghetti sticks provide greater strength than longer spaghetti sticks.
