The Ancient Egyptian pyramids are one of the most magnificent man-made structures created throughout history. Using the toothpicks and mini marshmallows, students must design either a freestanding square or rectangular pyramid. The goal of the challenge is to design the tallest pyramid in the shortest amount of time.
* We felt this challenge was challenging because it was difficult to keep our pyramid standing up. Annabelle, Nadia, & Keidy
* This was a fun and challenging STEM task. We enjoyed this activity. Heber, Juan, and Giovanny
* We predicted our pyramid would collapse. We're happy to say our pyramid didn't collapse - but it could have been sturdier. We had fun! Kori, Arabella, Ashton, and Layne
* We decided to tackle this challenge by creating a square pyramid because it would be sturdier and easier to create. We soon learned that it was a bit mroe challenging to build than we first thought. Asher, Madi T, Brylee, and Maddie B.
* We created a rectangular pyramid because it was sturdier. We quickly ran out of resources and we learned that we needed to use our resources more wisely. Stevie Rae, Knox, Jor'Dawn, and Maddox.
* We learned that choosing the right pyramid shape to build makes all the difference! Emory, Alex, and Courtlynn
* We enjoyed this challenge and had fun learning about the Egyptian pyramids and how they were constructed. - Jaxon, Martin, Valeria, and Kimberly
* We predicted the square pyramid would be a more simplistic pyramid to build but it turned out to be a challenging design. It was fun to build! - Cooper, Raegen, and Jovani
