    Also overlooked the other questions. There are multiple towers side by side, but each only has two pencils per story.

    Just a note to Tai Star, that the pencils are not touching the wall. They are just very close to the wall. I (their science teacher) have verified this. They built near the wall as a guide to keep it straight.

      awesome I would love to see that if possible.

    Super Awesome, however; I have to point out the rules are not followed. 1st only two pencils permitted per story, 2nd building against the wall would count as external support.

    Thanks everyone for the comments! me and my friend really appreciate it. We decided to break this record because our english teacher wanted us to break a record using an eglish based item so thats why we picked pencils. I am not sure what record i will breack next but i will try to break another one as soon as possible!!!

    This is great. What inspired you to beat this and how long did it take?

    Well I think this pencil tower still stands as a record for "Tallest Pencil Tower" under the variation / criteria of two pencils per story. Not sure how you'd word this as a title, the other variation is using any configuration/number of pencils choice which would better suit the records listed.

    Nice find, Peter. Let's add that video and make Dan's submission a fail.
