  The previous Guinness world record for the longest human electrical circuit was formed by staff and pupils of Merrill Middle School, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA on 2 june 2010. The circuit consisted of 378 people and was powered by a low voltage powerball.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the longest chain of electrical extension cables; it measured 16,000 m (52,493.4 ft) and was comprised of 640 individual extension cables by MVV Energie AG (Germany) in Mannheim, Germany.

  The school decided to challenge the current Guinness world record -- 392 people -- after Armand worked with his students on a miniature version in class.

  One of the students asked Armand what the world record was for the number of people in a circuit, and the teacher decided to pursue the idea.
  After a few practice runs, the school lined the perimeter of the playground. When instructed, they linked hands.

  TJR principal Malinda Lindsey served as the central link, holding the golf-ball sized, low-voltage energy ball that linked the rectangle of students and staff together.

   The ball blinked red and made beeping sounds while the circuit remained complete.

  Community members and officials helped serve as the witnesses and stewards, as required. Former mayor Judy B. McDonald, Nacogdoches Chief of Police Jim Sevey, Etech employees and NISD school board members Matt Rocco and Alan Sowards were among those on hand.
