Aimed at primary learners, this resource asks children to design and build a tower using spaghetti and marshmallows. This challenge links design and technology, mathematics and science as children use problem-solving strategies and knowledge of two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes to build their towers.
Looking at different towers from around the world, children discuss where and why particular shapes are used in the environment. They then go on to use this knowledge to design, build and evaluate their own constructions.
