2 The Marshmallow Challenge * ✦ Build the Tallest Freestanding Structure: The winning team is the one that has the tallest structure measured from the table top surface to the top of the marshmallow. That means the structure cannot be suspended from a higher structure, like a chair, ceiling or chandelier. ✦ The Entire Marshmallow Must be on Top: The entire marshmallow needs to be on the top of the structure. Cutting or eating part of the marshmallow disqualifies the team. ✦ Use as Much or as Little of the Kit: The team can use as many or as few of the 20 spaghetti sticks, as much or as little of the string or tape. The team cannot use the paper bag as part of their structure. ✦ Break up the Spaghetti, String or Tape: Teams are free to break the spaghetti, cut up the tape and string to create new structures. ✦ The Challenge Lasts 18 minutes: Teams cannot hold on to the structure when the time runs out. Those touching or supporting the structure at the end of the exercise will be disqualified. *

7 7 ► ► The Communication Capstone is designed to give students authentic engineering team oriented work experience in which the strengths of each member of the group is utilized for the good of the common product. Work groups are composed of four students that have specific roles (Project Manager, Electrical Engineer, Acoustical Engineer, and Creative Design). The groups will work over a 10 week period to complete three major construction components to a sound system. Communication Capstone Binder

9 9 Students were given the task to convey an Ohio Social Studies Benchmark in an abstract visual display. Students used Google SketchUp and a variety of technical plans and drawings to create and build and LED Light Display Box. Students then used machines from the FabLab to cutout and construct their designs. Circuits, breadboards, and timers were used to program a variety of LED effects that would help in creating their visual display. Many students used the Epilog Laser Cutter to etch an image or historical photograph on acrylic for the front of their box. Light
