Local students are learning chemistry in a fun way today.
The Don Harrington Discovery Center hosted Chemi-Con.
Hundreds of sixth to eighth graders did hands on learning labs about chemistry.
Officials say this allows the students to explore concepts outside the classroom.
They say students can sometimes learn better this way.
The Discovery Center partnered with the American Chemical Society to help create the event.
They hosted more than 400-area kids in the sold out event.
