Wow! We are well into the second week of TAG and already I am seeing so many great things from our students. Our first week was only a brief introduction to TAG, but we still had time to fit in some great team building fun. Below are pictures from our Marshmallow Challenge. Congratulations goes out to the three teams who successfully built a freestanding structure in only 18 minutes, using only spaghetti, string, and tape. Oh yeah, and it had to support the weight of a large marshmallow! It was lots of fun, and helped us to understand the importance of learning from our failures and working together as a team. Stay tuned - we have more exciting plans up ahead!!
