Early in the morning on November 23, at 6:02 a.m. to be exact, WSHS celebrated the annual Mole Day. Mole Day is a celebration of science, it being a basic measuring unit of chemistry. The equation itself looks like this: (6.02 x 10^23). The morning contained many different colors, gasses, and taste testings.

The summary of events goes as follows: magic potion clock reaction, blue glowing reaction, burning buck alcohol and water, woosh bottle, candle in the beaker, elephant toothpaste in pumpkin, freezing things in liquid n-ball including the marshmallows that could be eaten, tea kettle, and then the famous liquid nitrogen ice cream.

Not only were students and staff there, but students from Colby College as well. Waterville alum Kyle McGadney who attends Colby was there and says; “My professor for general Chemistry earlier in the semester asked me if I wanted to volunteer for it,  and I said yes. I’m not getting extra credit for it or anything, I just wanted to come.”
