PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - During a celebration of STEM (science, technology Engineering and mathematics) at Robinson Mall over the weekend, mallgoers joined Montour School District students in creating the largest Terrible Towel in history with Legos.

The project has also been submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records.

The 34,560 piece towel was completed Saturday afternoon and will stay on display through the remainder of the Steelers season and then will make its home at Allegheny Valley School, an organization that helps those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Myron Cope, the creator of the Terrible Towel handed ownership over to Allegheny Valley in 1996 and now the organization receives proceeds from each official towel sold.
