This is the image for the news article titled A Student's Account of Pushing and Pulling by Liberty and EmmaWe made a pyramid out of toothpicks and marshmallows. We used 30 marshmallows and over 35 toothpicks. We had three levels of pyramids. The base squares area not all the same size and the bottom layer is 3x3 square. We have a marshmallow in the middle that helps support all the weight. A 4-sided pyramid has a square base and triangles covering all four sides. It also has part of a truss bridge in it. Squares collapse easily under compression. We learned pushes and pulls are all around us. Triangles are the strongest shape so we used a lot of them. We hope you like our design.
