Introduction: Spaghetti and Wieners Meet Geometry

I recently saw a picture of some spaghettis stuck in pieces of wieners, and the results were these cute little lumps with floppy tails sticking out.  "So much potential," I thought.  Here are the results of my first geometric craft using spaghetti and wieners.

    That is great! When I first started the video I was wondering what would happen if you put it in boiling water, and then you did it! I didn't realize the pieces would stay together. That was really cool to see.

    I'm glad you like it! Yes, they stay together quite nicely because of the triple spaghetti, and the fact that spaghetti expands in the wiener as it cooks.

    What do you mean triple spaghetti???

    I wrote that a long time ago and... I'm not sure now! Maybe it's because each spaghetti "edge" is made of three spaghettis.

    I might try this for my math geometry project.
