Emerson and Da Vinci stack up

By From page A8 | November 19, 2013

Students at Emerson and Da Vinci junior high schools — including Abbey Fisk, far left, Patrick Yeung, left, and Autumn Marcheschi, right — participated in an attempt to set a world sport stacking record last week.

It was the eighth annual Stack Up, with thousands of participants around the world taking part in what Guinness World Records called the “World’s Largest” sport stacking event — a sport deemed “a track meet for your hands at warp speed.”

Students had to build up and take down pyramids of cups as fast as possible for 30 minutes.

The sport is appealing to teachers and students because it’s easy to learn but very challenging to master. Benefits include improved reaction time, hand-eye coordination, concentration and focus.
