Leadership - Marshmallow Challenge

Our challenge was to make a free-standing tower with string, tape, and uncooked spaghetti noodles. It had to be able to hold a marshmallow on top. Whichever group had the marshmallow the highest won. Some of the groups had success while others didn’t do as well. The winner was the River Dam, which was made by the only group without an American student. The activity taught us team building skills and helped us to develop bonds with the students. At first, all of the Belizean students were very shy, but by the end they were laughing along with us when our towers turned into epic failures. We met lots of new friends, and learned a lot about Belizean culture.
