Pupils' query first asked in world lesson
A question posed by students at Market Bosworth High School was the first to be used in the world's first live broadcast of a science lesson at the Royal Albert Hall, in London.
The broadcast was streamed live via the internet to classrooms across the world over 15 minutes to an online audience of thousands, including pupils from the Leicestershire school.
The question posed by pupils was "can sound warm objects up?" It was selected by organisers as their favourite and was answered by Dallas Campbell and Dr Yan Wong, presenters of BBC1 show Bang Goes The Theory.
The lesson is one of several initiatives being run by the hall to expand its reach outside of London.

Faisal Khan, head of science at Market Bosworth High School, said: "We already work with more than 650 children each year, across the ability range and from every type of background, and the science lesson allows us to extend this further, across the country and even the world. We hope for this to be the first of many live lessons for our students."
