Mad scientists: Chemistry teachers demonstrate Halloween-themed experiments [photo gallery]

Mr. Jeff Christopherson and Mr. Mike Roller demonstrated Halloween-themed experiments for their chemistry classes on Friday, Oct. 29, scaling the annual event back from previous years.

In his 5th-hour Honors Chemistry class, Christopherson exploded jack-o’-lanterns, lit students’ hands on fire, and popped 2-liter bottles decorated like Frankenstein’s monster.

Historically, the chemistry teachers combine classes to conduct the experiments and allow other students and staff members to observe the event. This year, the traditional Halloween festivities were performed just for the two teachers’ students.
