Tall buildings can be a marker of a famous city – from the CN tower in Toronto Canada, to the Shard in London – these impressive structures define the skyline of world-leading cities.

These tall structures are only possible because of the work of civil engineers who design these massive structures to be able to withstand high winds and earthquakes.

Your challenge is to build a 1m tall tower using uncooked spaghetti and marshmallows.
