Who can build the tallest spaghetti tower?

In Year 6, we welcomed Mr Shannon in to 'kick start' our science week.   He spoke to the year group about his job as a civil engineer and highlighted how important science is in his work.  He had many interesting facts to share and the children asked lots of questions.

He then set the children a challenge in the classrooms - who could build the highest spaghetti tower? They only had 20 strands of spaghetti and 1m of tape and the towers had to be strong enough to hold a giant marshmallow.  The children worked in groups and showed great teamwork and perseverance. 

The winning tower was from Banksy and measured 26.5cm tall!
