BoS USA 2016: Suspended M&Ms and Spaghetti Structures

From our breakout session on Monday 12th September, we asked participants to suspend M&Ms from a structure made from materials including spaghetti, marshmallows, strawberry laces and other things they had at hand. Scores were calculated by multiplying the number of individually suspended M&Ms suspended at least 2 inches from the structure by the height of the lowest M&M off the ground. (Simpler than it sounds!).

Below are a few photographs of the mess that was made genius designs they came up with!

Clever approach and huge determination to use an entire packet of spaghetti.

Unfortunately, this will only result in a negative score…
