Our campus has come alive as faculty and staff returned to officially begin the 2017-18 school year. While this week of pre-planning includes much work, everyone shared smiles and laughter during a fun team building exercise: The Marshmallow Challenge.
In eighteen minutes, teams attempted to build the tallest free-standing structure out of 20 sticks of spaghetti, one yard of tape, one yard of string, and one marshmallow. The marshmallow had to be on top.
With teams reaching both "a-ha!" and "oh-no!" moments, faculty and staff were immersed in creative thinking, innovation, and collaboration - the same learning experiences they will be giving to their students.
