Description:

Play with your food while learning about engineering! Build a spaghetti bridge, then test its strength by piling on the marshmallows, raw spaghetti, raw linguine and coins. Investigate the difference between the strength of bridges made from flat and round building materials (spaghetti is round, while linguine is flat). Learn by doing that circles are among the strongest shapes in nature, and that external and internal stress distributes itself evenly throughout a round structure.
