Pictures are the winners. Addisyn Hendrickson (second), Jacob Scott (first), and Savannah Higley(third).

Fifth grade students were involved all day February 9th with “Reaction Time”. Each class spent 30 minutes in a hands on learning lab after a grade level assembly. “The Reaction Time program covers Standard I of the fifth-grade science core—matter, physical changes, and chemical reactions. During the lab, students design and perform chemistry experiments under the direction of a Discovery Gateway science outreach instructor. Discovery Gateway also provides teachers with preparatory packets, follow-up materials, and science equipment to continue scientific learning in the classroom.”
