During week 3: Inventors’ Workshop, the students made lots of different structures and learned about inventions.

For the Odyssey of the Mind competition, students had a challenge of making a free-standing structure with spaghetti and a marshmallow!

Here is a picture of the winning structure:

They visited the Cosmocaixa exhibit Ideas que Cambian Vidas.

The exhibit shows inventions made to help thousands of people in Africa, Asia and Latin America who don’t have water, electricity, or other modern conveniences.
