Success (on the first try)! 6 minutes 34 seconds of blindfold juggling to set the Guinness World Record for blindfold juggling of 3 objects.
Let’s get more students involved and excited about STEM education!
The attempt took place on October 2nd a little after 4PM in the Basque Block in downtown Boise at the Cradlepoint block party. The 20mph gusty wind didn’t cause too many problems .
Now I just need to submit all the official documents, video and photographic evidence and wait for the official certificate from Guinness.
I may have been able to keep going but when 300 people started cheering at the world record mark on my first run I got so excited I overthrew a ball and dropped it. My arms were pretty wobbly the entire run but I was able to count catches and focus enough to keep calm until the surge of adrenaline caused all loss of fine motor control.
