Squeals of excitement filled the gymnasium at St. Michael's Elementary as flowing bubbles of bright blue elephant toothpaste came overflowing out of the plastic bottle.
"Warning, do not eat. This is not really toothpaste," fifth-grader Allison Vrooman told the audience.
"It only looks like toothpaste when it comes out of the tube," classmate Paige Jacobi added.
The creation of elephant toothpaste was one of three experiments and a total of six presentations given during the first-ever Discovery Day at St. Michael's Wednesday. The entire student body and many family members were in attendance.
Sister M. Hedwig Kortte, the school's principal, started the program by explaining a bit about the concept of Discovery Day.
