Discovery Gateway came to Cherry Creek Elementary to show our 5th graders the proper way to mix chemicals without blowing anything up or destroying themselves. When chemicals synergize, they create something different as they work together, just like what Habit #6 teaches us. Students were able to mix chemicals together and practice what they learned through personal trial and error.

They really enjoy the presentation that the lab scientist gave. They also enjoyed working with one another and synergizing to bring about a chemical reaction.
