Annotation

This video, part of the TED Talks series, probes the "marshmallow problem," a simple team-building exercise that involves dry spaghetti, one yard of tape, and a marshmallow. The exercise forces people to collaborate quickly with the goal of building the tallest tower. The speaker discusses the lessons of collaboration that are learned throughout the process, including what types of teams succeed and what types fail.
