The Terrible Towel - Built from Legos!
On September 22, as part of STEM Fest at the Mall at Robinson in Pittsburgh, students from Montour Elementary School arranged build the world’s largest The Terrible Towel® from Lego blocks. The students built the words of the Towel, and members of the public were invited to place all the yellow Legos onto the board. When the project was finished, 34,560 Lego blocks had been utilized!
The effort was coordinated by Montour Elementary Co-Principals Jason Burik and Jason Shoaf. The project was submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records and should hear back in a few months if the Towel will be recognized.
The Lego Terrible Towel will remain on display on the upper level of the Mall in front of JCPenney throughout the football season.
Merakey Allegheny Valley School is the proud beneficiary of The Terrible Towel. Since 1996, the royalties from the sale of all officially licensed “Terrible Stuff” (including towels, ties, ornaments, lapel pins, flags, bibs, cookies, temporary tattoos and more) have come to Merakey AVS.
