Guinness World Record attempt at UW-Whitewater

UW-Whitewater students will attempt a Guinness World Record for longest glow stick at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 7, at Perkins Stadium, as part of the university’s Sesquicentennial celebrations. Constructed by students and faculty from the Department of Chemistry, the stick will be 150 meters long — one for every year of the university’s existence. The “breaking” of the glow stick will take place during Willie’s Birthday Bash, a campus-wide celebration featuring food, live music, and fireworks.
