The Skills Mastery and Resistance Training Kids program for kids ages six through nine (SMART Kids) is a national character education program. This group of McKinney Unit SMART kids also participated in the Boys & Girls Club of Benton County’s ongoing STEM program. The program encourages interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. The SMART kids got a bit smarter when they created homemade sidewalk chalk and used it to draw figures on concrete. The fun part, however, was to watch it erupt when they added vinegar to it!
