LEGO TERRIBLE TOWEL
75″ long x 45″ wide
34,560 Lego blocks
Montour Elementary School students designed the world’s
largest Lego block Terrible Towel. The community helped
build the project during STEMFest at The Mall At Robinson in Pittsburgh PA.
The Terrible Towel was created by the late Myron Cope, the Pittsburgh Steelers
broadcaster who needed a way to excite the team’s fans during a 1975 playoff football game
against the Baltimore Colts. Cope urged fans to take yellow dish towels to the game
and wave them throughout.
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of all Terrible Towel products benefits
Merakey Allegheny Valley School, a private non-profit organization supporting adults
with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout Pennsylvania.
