Exeter students learn wonder of science

Wednesday, May 4, 2016
Trinity Atkinson, Isabell Donovan, Whitney Beck and Noah Jordan participate in a science experiment at Exeter Elementary School Friday night, as part of the school's 'Science Night,' held once a year in conjunction with the after school program, to teach children hands-on science. Here, the students learned about chemistry and the color spectrum by transposing a rainbow onto ordinary black construction paper using a few simple ingredients.

A group of Exeter elementary students, a.k.a., "mad scientists," work together to mix up a potion of "toothpaste" during a science experiment at the school's recent Science Night event. Students participated in about five different, hands-on experiments to learn about science and chemistry during the annual event, which was made possible as a result of the school's award-winning after-school program. Other experiments included making jewelry out of milk, sprouting seeds with a cotton ball, transposing a rainbow onto black construction paper and displacing colors in liquids.
