Tower of Power 2021 Winners

March 4, 2021

To celebrate National Engineers’ Week, we invited middle schools to participate in the annual Tower of Power In a Half Hour competition. Participating teams were tasked to build a tower out of spaghetti and marshmallows, with the goal of building the tallest freestanding tower.

This year’s winning schools were: The Greenmount School, The Summit School, Gilman Middle School, Maryvale Preparatory School, and the Waldorf School of Baltimore.
