Fourth and fifth grade students from Union Intermediate School were treated to a wonderful science assembly, Friday, Feb. 12 by Mad Science of Raleigh.
The program contained fascinating science demonstrations, bubbling potions, and dry ice showers. The show was made possible by a Love of Learning Grant funded by the Simple Gifts Fund.
Event organizers planned five additional hands on stations for the students to participate in, but the plans were cut short by an early release due to weather. The science group will return in March for more science fun.
Lauren McMillan and Callie White, fourth grade students, summed up their view.
“I think the Mad Science program is a wonderful experience and a brilliant and fun way to learn about the world of science,” McMillan said. “It was really cool. They had dry ice, gun paper, and fire. We even got to help the guy with super cool experiments. The guy also talked about how a cat helped a man with creating a gun. If you ever have a chance to go to a show, you should snatch up the chance and go because it’s a once in a lifetime experience.”
