Mayo Science Spaghetti Challenge

Posted by Mollie On December - 15 - 2010

Here are some pictures of our Spaghetti Challenge Structure which took place in the McWilliam Park Hotel, Claremorris. Fifth and sixth class took part. Unfortunately we lost, but from that experience we learned that winning was not everything. We learned how to have patience and not to argue whilst building the structure and also learned that you can make strong structures from light materials. We worked as a good team!
