Horace Mann Elementary held a Science Behavior Bash on Friday, which gave students hands-on experiences with science properties and a chance to interact with teacher John Lamar's, Smith-Cotton High School students.

Some of the Smith-Cotton students led some of the activities. To participate in the bash, Horace Mann students had to pay $100 in Cub Cash, the school's positive behavior currency; have no office referrals, and have 90 percent or better attendance. Participants built structures with marshmallows and toothpicks; had blind taste tests of various foods, and made slime, among other activities.
