A group of 120 students and their 30 year old chemistry teacher Giovanni Cogollo made a record breaking attempt of continuous teaching class for 72 hours. The students belong to Alfonso Lopez Pumarejo school in Turbaco, in the province of Bolivar, Columbia.
Now students and their teacher wants it to be officially recognized as a Guinness record for longest non-stop teaching class. The original purpose of this attempt was to help collect fund for charity to medical institute for treatment of 70 children suffering from cancer.
During the attempt students were allowed to take 5 minutes break after every 1 hour, but the children decided to take breaks in longer periods, which helped them in achieving this record.
