Posted:
SPENCER, Iowa (KTIV) -

You can find just about anything you'd want to eat or do at the Clay County Fair in Spencer.  Saturday, they held an event that was one for the record books.

Hundreds gathered for the "World's Largest Science Lesson."  The lesson learned: "The Power of Air," which focused on the unseen forces of wind, pressure, and power.

The hands on lesson included two experiments for the students to complete inside the grandstands.

The old record of 749 students was set in Norway in 2012.  Saturday, 771 people showed up to participate in Spencer, which means they have unofficially set a new record.
