Inspired by the famous AIA Staten Island Marshmallow and Spaghetti Building Competition, AIA New Jersey members Steven Lazarus and Stacey Kliesch took their grocery sacks and hit the road to offer K-12 lessons building spaghetti- marshmallow structures.
In each session, the architects asked leading questions and made observations during the model building to guide the students to better understand the implications of their design decisions and take corrective action when necessary. The greatest surprise was avoiding a food fight or a picnic at this fun event! Both Steve and Stacey enjoyed offering this lesson and look forward to teaching it again.
