The spaghetti and marshmallow tower that I created is approximately 31.25 inches, or 79.375 centimeters. I used 46 pieces of spaghetti and 16 marshmallows to build the tower. The use of triangles was emphasized throughout the tower. I knew I should use triangles because they provide the greatest stability when building tall towers. Hence, I made numerous triangle designs throughout the tower. In addition, there was a structural emphasis on the base, middle, and the spire. The base was made wide so that it can withstand pressure for an extended period of time. The middle section helped build the tower upwards. Finally, there was a spire, which is like icing on a cake.
