On Friday, August 19, 2016, 32 WACC Work-Based Learning Co-Op students, led by Angie Heinsman and Dave Clark, and 81 Washington STEM Academy sixth graders, led by Nicole Ryman, Patrick Hazelton, and Rebecca Dawson, collaborated in an activity called the Marshmallow Challenge.  They were tasked with creating the tallest, freestanding structure using only 20 sticks of spaghetti, 1 yard of string, 1 yard of masking tape, and a jumbo marshmallow.  They had 18 minutes to complete the challenge in multi-age groups.  The room was abuzz with activity during the 18-minute work time given to complete the task.  Students used trial and error, along with prototyping in order to achieve the highest structure.  Some experienced successed, and others learned the meaning of not YET.  Research shows that typically the best performances come from engineers and kindergartners.  That research proved to be true as our winning group included Mallory Hooks, who is in WBL Co-Op following an engineering pathway.  The instructors were really proud of the collaboration, creativity, and problem-solving skills shown by the students.

The Winners are shown below, with a structure of 23 3/4" high:  Mallory Hooks, WACC, Liana Dunkel, Angelica Garcia, Abigail Parcels, and Alexis Vargas, Washington STEM Academy
