Youngsters had fun building the tallest towers they could out of raw spaghetti and marshmallows at a Stamford Hill primary school this week.
Parents were invited into Tyssen school in Oldhill Street to join in with the foody fun as part of science week.
“The children thought it was hilarious, some of them the towers weren’t able to stay up, they just fell over but everyone was having so much fun it didn’t really matter,” said science and sustainability co-ordinator Alex Gwinnett.
He continued: “The idea is basically to start honing their architectural skills and choosing adequate materials and the mathematics in angles.
“Spaghetti and marshmallows are nice and easy to get hold of, you can just build pyramids or bridges, the marshmallows are the gelling agent and the raw spaghetti is like the poles.
