Jump Start Your Ideation

Each podcast is a presentation of a single problem that will help you stretch your imagination and critical thinking skills before you start problem solving. The problems are formulated to not have a single “correct” answer but to give you the opportunity to have an open discourse on different approaches to a solution.

Launch Pad Problems #54 - Don't Crush the Marshmallow


How many bbs can be put onto a marshmallow without crushing it? If you have only 1 marshmallow how do you know how many is too few or too many?

Try it with 3 marshmallows for a more scientific approach to the problem.

If your going to try it I've created a marshmallow crusher that is available over on thingiverse to print and use yourself.
