Spaghetti Tower Challenge

In a race against the clock, your team must construct a tower using only marshmallows and dried spaghetti! Put your problem-solving skills to the test and work together as a team to build the tallest and strongest structure. The spaghetti provides the framework for the tower and the marshmallows are used to connect the spaghetti. Your tower must stand unaided for 30 seconds.

Mousetrap Racers

You can do more with a mousetrap than just catch pesky mice! Build a car powered by a mousetrap and race it on the Science Alive! racetrack.

Build your mousetrap racer either at school or home and bring it along to Science Alive! We’ll also have a limited number of racers for you to compare differences in wheel sizes, wheel material and rolling resistance.
