KTRE-TV reported Nacogdoches students at Thomas J. Rusk Elementary School broke a world record for the longest human electrical circuit.
The previous record of 378, set by staff and students at a Wisconsin middle school in 2010, was shattered when 669 Thomas J. Rusk students formed the circuit Friday.
One person touched an electrode while holding a person's hand with more than 600 linking up in a circle and another touching the other electrode, to light up an energy ball.
Mike Armand, a fourth grade science teacher at Thomas J. Rusk, has spent the last two weeks preparing the entire student body to form the human electrical circuit.
"We used this as a demonstrator to show kids that the human body has conductivity but also that we could make a circuit as long as everyone is in physical contact with each other," Armand said.
A representative from Guinness Book of World Records was at the school to confirm the new record.
