The Marshmallow Challenge

The Marshmallow Challenge

I first learned about this challenge at VCU Brandcenter and no – I”m not talking about Chubby Bunny
What I”m talking about is a collaborative exercise in which teams of 4 get 18 minutes each to
create the tallest freestanding structure out of spaghetti, tape, string and a single marshmallow.

It”s the type of challenge that asks you to fail and fail again, until you get it right.
A task that kids excel at because they aren”t afraid of failure – they don”t think, they just do.
Kids always “go with their gut” because instinct is all they know and they don”t think
to themselves “remember the last time you tried this and made a huge ass of yourself?”

So – take the challenge, forget the past and learn how to become a failure. And don”t forget to share with us how it goes.
