The Red Clay Consolidated School District in Wilmington, DE have set the Guinness World Record for the tallest LEGO tower at 112 feet, 11 and 3/4 inches. The tower was created using more than half a million bricks and weighed in at almost a ton. The project started in March and took students throughout the summer to finish their section of the tower and today was completed around 6:45pm at John Dickinson High School. There were 28 schools in the district that worked together to create the mammoth structure. All the bricks that were used were not from school funds but with donations from all over the world. The previous world record was set in Prague, Czech Republic in September 2012 and was at 106 feet and 7 inches. Portions of the record setting tower will now be given to individuals who donated $25 or more towards the project and some will be going back to the schools for educational purposes. The remaining bricks will be sold and the funds will be going back to the Red Clay district for school activities.
