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 Teacher Professional Training Development (TPD) program covers strand 5.2 of the fifth-grade Utah SEEd Standards. Chain Reaction is funded by the Utah State Legislature with oversight by the Utah State Board of Education through the Informal Science Education Enhancement (iSEE) grant. Discovery Gateway is committed to providing innovative, educational science experiences and matches the funds provided by the iSEE grant. 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.


Chain Reaction has been revised to better align with the current SEEd Standards! Sign up now!
