The system we used was the person on one side of the table stayed, and the person on the other side rotated every 3 minutes. The benefits were we got to get to know people. The problem was because of the system not everyone in the room met. We modified it by switching the sides of the table that rotated. Maggie Peter David Aaron Paige Sierra Name Game System

Slide 8:

The Marshmallow Challenge The Marshmallow Challenge was about how we tried to make a structure out of certain materials and then but a marshmallow on top. The materials we worked with was string, tape, pasta, scissors and a marshmallow. We had 18 minutes to try and construct this. The goal was the make a structure that could stand by itself with a marshmallow on top. My idea process was to build it strong and sturdy at the bottom like a teepee, but that didn’t work. Each of us would say our different ideas and then we tried to combine them all into one.
