And they said it couldn't be done!
Last year's amazing record-breaking 7th grade engineering tower was surpassed today by Monica Geiser and Ashlyn Kamke. Please join me in congratulating these stupendous students on their new holding record of 28 textbooks held by a structure made of nothing except standard straws and standard straight pins! Their final structure measured within set limitations and held each additional book for the full requisite 10 seconds between each book. They are incredible!
