Marshmallow Challenge

As part of the Senior Game Visionary Badge, the girls completed the Marshmallow Challenge for their Ice Breaker activity.

The Marshmallow challenge is a fun activity.  The girls break into small teams.  Each team is given 18 minutes to complete the tallest free-standing structure they can using 20 sticks of spaghetti, 1 yard of masking tape, 1 yard of string, and one ordinary marshmallow.  The marshmallow must remain on top.

Check out the Marshmallow Challenge website for more details and background information on this activity.

We had two teams of three girls - the 9th & 7th graders vs the 10th graders.

The 9th/7th graders created the taller structure!

Another activity of this badge was to experiment with different logic puzzles.  We had a variety of different logic puzzles that each girl had a set time to try before passing it on to the next.

All six girls trying out the puzzle games.

We also played a life-size game of CLUE outside.  A game board was drawn in chalk on the driveway, and the girls themselves were the pawn players.  Forgot to get photos of this game, but it was fun.  :-)
