    Fifth grade students at Scales Elementary are using their noodles to build spaghetti towers.

    During Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Week April 26-30, students in Darcy Bodziony's class completed a challenge each day. On Friday, they were asked to create the tallest tower using only uncooked spaghetti noodles, tape and string. To make it even more difficult, the tower also had to support a jumbo marshmallow.

    "We were making pyramids out of the noodles and stacking them, and then we put the marshmallow on top," said SES fifth grader Jasper Smith. "Our class likes STEM Week a lot, and so does our teacher. All the experiments you get to do are so much fun."
