Chain Reaction


Empowering Teachers & Students to Explore Science Education

Chain Reaction was developed to support teachers through informative, hands-on science training, as well as through supplemental materials for use in the classroom. This three-hour program provides teachers with lesson plans and a kit containing $250 worth of chemistry supplies to take back to the classroom. Teachers can receive three licensure points after attendance.

This Teacher Professional Training Development (TPD) program covers strand 5.2 of the fifth-grade Utah SEEd Standards. Discovery Gateway’s mission is to inspire children of all ages and abilities to imagine, discover, and connect with their world to make a difference. Through Chain Reaction, we bring our mission to the classroom by empowering teachers and students to embrace and explore science education.

This program is offered multiple times throughout the year. It is generally hosted at Discovery Gateway Children's Museum. For school districts that are more than two hours away, requests can be made to have this program presented at your school, and we will door best to accommodate.

Utah State Legislature funds Chain Reaction with oversight by the Utah State Board of Education through the Informal Science Education Enhancement (iSEE) grant.
