Description

Business Models Inc and Innovation & Collaboration Centre at UniSA invite you to "The Marshmallow Challenge" as part of Open State 2017.

The Marshmallow Challenge is a game for learning about innovation, creativity, teams, collaboration, as well as the value of early prototyping and incremental delivery. Part of the real power of the game is in helping people to identify the hidden assumptions that every project has, and to recognize the value in diversity.

The Spaghetti Marshmallow Challenge is fast-paced and fun activity in design thinking to practice prototyping and testing. It helps to move teams design thinking to design doing.

The task is simple: in eighteen minutes, teams must build the tallest free-standing structure out of 20 sticks of spaghetti, one yard of tape, one yard of string, and one marshmallow. The marshmallow needs to be on top
