  4. 4. Your Goal:• Build the tallest free-standing structure possible…• …and place the marshmallow at the top of it!
  5. 5. Rule #1• Build the tallest freestanding structure: The winning team is the one that has the tallest structure measured from the tabletop surface to the top of the marshmallow. That means the structure cannot be suspended from a higher structure, like a chair, ceiling, or chandelier.
  6. 6. Rule #2• The entire marshmallow must be on top: The entire marshmallow must be on the top of the structure. Cutting or eating part of the marshmallow disqualifies the team!
  7. 7. Rule #3• Use as much or as little of the kit: The team can use as many or as few of the 20 spaghetti sticks, as much or as little of the string or tape. The rules and envelope cannot be part of the structure.
  8. 8. Rule #4• Break up the spaghetti, string, or tape. Teams are free to break the spaghetti, and cut up the tape and string to create new structures.
  9. 9. Rule #5• The Challenge lasts 18 minutes: Teams cannot hold onto the structure when the time runs out. Those touching or supporting the structure at the end of the exercise will be disqualified.
