We Challenge You! #7: Cup Pyramid

This is our last challenge of the year. We had to practice a little before videotaping it.  We would love to see other classes try it out.  We are more interested in seeing students working together to building the pyramid – your time is not important.  Although, you are welcome to try! Let us know if you make a video by leaving a comment telling us where to find it.

UPDATE:
Students in New Zealand did our challenge!
 
Students in Mettupalayam, India did the Cup Challenge!
