 Largest Tetrix: Ravenscroft Math Club breaks Guinness World Records' record


  
RALEIGH, NC, USA -- Middle school students at Ravenscroft built a 9-foot-tall towering "tetrix" out of 1,024 smaller paper pyramids that has broken a Guinness World Records' record; based on the Sierpinski triangle fractal, a mathematical design in which each large piece is made of matching smaller pieces, it sets
the new world record for the Largest Tetrix, according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.

 The Guinness World Records' record for the largest game of Tetris measured 105.79 m² and was played on The Gadget Show in Birmingham, UK.

  Guinness World Record also recognized the world record for the Largest official Tetris game, set by Tetris Giant (SEGA, 2009); the massive cabinet measures 1.6 m wide, 1.7 m deep and 2.2 m high (5 ft 2 in by 5 ft 6 in by 7 ft 2 in).

   The 9-foot-tall pyramid they built out of 1,024 smaller paper pyramids was based on the Sierpinski triangle fractal, a mathematical design in which each large piece is made of matching smaller pieces.

   The structure, with just as much space as substance, was delicate, held together only by tiny dots of hot glue.

  Sometimes the paper pyramids weren't cut exactly to spec and had to be redone, the NewsObserver.com reported.
