Jacob Mello '17 Brings Myth Busters to the Classroom


Jacob Mello ’17 stopped by Mr. Gacicia’s class to bust the myth that a piece of paper cannot be folded more than seven times.

A Myth Busters elective is offered to Class 11 and 12 students and encourages testing common myths to discover which are true or not. Jacob showed students how individuals who used powerful machinery, such as steamrollers and forklifts, achieved getting the paper past the seventh fold.
