Last night at our general meeting, we tried something new. We had a Design Challenge! We broke everyone up into teams and gave them marshmallows, uncooked noodles, paper, and tape and told them to build the tallest tower they could in eighteen minutes. At the end, we measured from the table to the top of the large marshmallow to see who won.
There was definitely some serious competition between the teams! But it seemed like everyone had a great time. This was a great way to meet new people (the groups were randomly assigned) and to give everyone a fun activity to break up the craziness that usually comes around this time of the semester.
I hope all those who came had a good time! Check out some of the towers below.
