“Great Towers Take Time to Construct”

Yesterday in their computer classes, Mrs. Browning’s students built “spaghetti towers.”  While the immediate goal of this hands-on activity was to build a tower as tall as possible using only dry spaghetti noodles, gumdrops, and a marshmallow (on top of it all, of course), ultimately, students were building their teamwork and critical thinking skills.  Furthermore, they discovered that learning can actually be fun!
