How do you stack up?
That’s what Cohoes Middle School students found out in P.E. class on Thursday as they tried to break a Guinness World Record. They were participating in the 2018 STACK UP! along with thousands of other stackers around the world.
The goal was to have 635,000 people stacking cups, setting a new world record.
“This is the kind of activity that builds confidence,” P.E. teacher Terry Gendron said. “It’s great hand-eye coordination, and it’s usually the non-athletes who find success in this. It levels the playing field because it’s a relatively new activity for everyone.”
This is the second year the middle school has participated in STACK UP! The global effort to reach a new record fell short in 2017.
