PUPILS were turned into human light bulbs in a giant live experiment to promote teaching.

Thirty schoolchildren from Merlin Primary School in Ballamore Road, Downham joined more than 100 other pupils at the event in London's Science Museum.

Organised by the Training and Development Agency for Schools (TDA), the activity was staged at the Train to Teach recruitment event.

Children formed a human chain to conduct an electrical current via five plasma balls which, when combined, powered-up a giant neon sign displaying the words, 'Train to Teach'.
