Learn how to demonstrate engineering, stability and gravity principles using marshmallows with the instructions in this Howcast science project video.

When you think of natural disasters, there are several that come to mind. You have earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes, hurricanes. But, if I show you marshmallows, and I show you toothpicks, and tell you that we’re about to do an experiment that has to do with natural disasters, you’re gonna be, like, “Wait, what? Marshmallows and toothpicks, and natural disasters? But you.” Yeah, we’re going to do that, and I have a challenge for you. This is your challenge: I need you to get a bag of marshmallows, and you know what I love about this, is if your marshmallows ever get stale, the worst thing to do as a scientist is to throw them out. You can reuse anything, rather than making it into garbage.
