Students at Waverly Avenue Elementary School stepped inside the world of science during an assembly called, “Spin, Pop, Boom,” presented by Mad Science. Students learned all about chemistry and reactions through exciting experiments and demonstrations.

Student volunteers stepped up to the lab table in front of the audience to learn about acids, bases and chemical reactions through hands-on activities. They watched Styrofoam cups melt in their hands, lids pop off of plastic cannisters thanks to an Alka-Seltzer reaction and even created “elephant toothpaste” by mixing hydrogen peroxide and soap.
