Today's STEAM activity was building support systems towers out of mini marshmallows and spaghetti! I had a blast watching participants work together and figure out the different shapes and stability levels possible.
After the contest ended (tied #1 towers measured 16") we snacked on some mini marshmallows and continued to build... some nearly reached two feet by the end of the program! A special thank you to the kids and parents who stuck around and helped me pick up afterwords. It's always such a sweet surprise.

Next week's STEAM activity is a Shadow Storytime. The full summer schedule can be found at our website.
