3rd Guinness World Record Set!

Juggling for STEM at the Kids Fair at Expo Idaho on February 27th, 2016. 3/16/16: Guinness approved it. It’s Official!

After a 30-minute juggling show inspiring kids to pursue STEM education, I attempted to set the Guinness World Record for “Most juggling head rolls in a minute (three balls)”. I beat the previous record of 135 on the first try with 141 but had almost 18 seconds left when I dropped a ball. On the 2nd try I got 194.

Here’s the minute and 1 minute 44 second summary of the day:

CBS News 2 showed up and I gave a short interview about what I was up to and how I try to encourage kids to pursue Science and Technology while I have their attention with juggling.
