This task is called Jelly Spaghetti and students were given £1500 (monopoly money) to buy materials and also asked team players to help them build the tallest tower possible.
Robbi and Raj (volunteer tutors) helped student team leaders to discover their own confidence in communicating ideas to their team. This is before they start creating their own style of towers.
All tutors were very pleased by the way the students expressed their creative abilities in this task as both the towers produced were taller than the provided structures.
Students had to choose whether to copy the structures available or to discover alternative ways to produce the highest tower.
Have a look at the pictures and video and enjoy!
