At Children's Emporium Pre-School, they did a fun STEM activity! They learned about giant buildings created by people such as skyscrapers and discussed how such buildings need to be built in certain ways in order to NOT topple over. After discussing the importance of a solid design, the kids made their own skyscrapers by using toothpicks and marshmallows!
