Marshmallow Towers!

Last week's Mad Science gave the kids a chance to experiment with some architecture. They built towers out of marshmallows and toothpicks! Check out what they had to say...
"I made a marshmallow tower. It held up the book and I built the best structure! It was fun!" ~Diano

"We had fun building a marshmallow structure to balance a book. We won because we put a lot of toothpicks to hold the marshmallows up." ~Chelsea
"It was fun to make a marshmallow structure. We won but it survived only a little time. Then we put the Judy Blume book on it and it worked. I got a Club Buck!" ~Chad

"Today's experiment was fun. We had to build a marshmallow structure to hold up a book. Brandon, Arnold and I failed epicly! It fell because it was not supported well. But I ate a lot of marshmallows!" ~Preston
"During this Mad Science we had to build something out of marshmallows and toothpicks. With Justice's and Ari's help, we build a little box that we thought would work. But when we put the book on it, it failed and was crushed!" ~Shantae
"Today's experiment was really good. We tried to make the heavy book stand on toothpicks and marshmallows. No, mine didn't work but it was fun!" ~Keonna
