Delaware students team up up to build the world’s highest Lego tower
A group of high school students in Wilmington, Delaware just completed a 112-foot Lego tower constructed from over 500,000 bricks that sets a new Guinness World Record for the world’s tallest free-standing LEGO tower. On Monday evening the team fitted the final piece, a fitting miniature Lego house, in front of the Guinness World Record Book representatives. The Wilmington tower eclipses the previous record holder, a Czech-built 106-foot, bricked rendition of the Prague tower.
Ever wondered why lego mini-figures have holes in their heads? Is it to match the bricks? To snap on hats? Nope. In reality, they have been designed to allow air to pass through if lodged in a child’s throat.
A beautiful photographic tour of the LEGO offices, you will be envious.
