This is great.   We know that more than anything else, we want our students to be effective problem-solvers and creative thinkers; this project is a way for students to work with the simplest of materials, collaborate, innovate, and measure the results.   By its bare simplicity, then, it can be deployed again and again and results compared, so that we can learn, as this video demonstrates, what is, and what is not, effective group process for problem solving and innovation.

The full Marshmallow Challenge site is here, and I am eager to bring this to my students soon, and then again and again as a tool to both prod and measure their ongoing growth as innovative problem-solvers.
