FRISCO – Competing teams of eighth-grade chemistry students nervously presented their spiels to a Donald Trump look-a-like Friday morning, when Diane Smith’s classroom was transformed into a middle school version of “The Apprentice” boardroom.

“The box does not overwhelm the customer,” Noah Crocker explained, as he and teammate Geordie Tousey pitched their homemade crayon container to the “Donald.”The presentations culminated a two-week module on green chemistry – inspired and partly sponsored by the Keystone Center. Students were charged with developing, manufacturing and packaging crayons, with an eye on the cost of the finished product, as well as its environmental impact.

The ColorMeBrite team, with its slogan “Brightening the world one crayon at a time,” took home the grand prize.
