Employees assembled in our large-group conference room and teams were announced. They had 15 minutes to invent a name and a 10-word cheer. The first-ever Rocket Matter Olympic teams are:
Legions of Doom
Next came the activity. Day one’s activity required them to build a structure out of 20 strands of hard spaghetti, 1 yard of tape, and 1 yard of string. Then a marshmallow needs to be placed atop the structure. The highest marshmallow from the base of the structure wins. The teams had 25 minutes to complete the task.
The winning team was Shark Tank, with a marshmallow height of 26″. The winning structure is below. Immediately after the competition concluded, one of our interns, Lauren, promptly ate the marshmallow.
