Seminole High School locked down after student brings mercury-filled thermometer to class for chemistry project
Boca Ciega, Florida -- A chemistry project caused a big problem at Pinellas' Seminole High School Tuesday morning.
The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says students were given an assignment to bring in a substance from the Periodic Table of Elements.
One student brought in mercury -- contained within a thermometer -- and the school went into lockdown.
Deputies say the thermometer was discovered as the substances were checked before going through the school.
No one was put in harm's way, but a hazmat crew was there as a precaution.
Pinellas County Schools tell 10 News the students were told not to bring certain toxic elements from the periodic table, mercury included.
this is the same substance our Liberal Congress decided should be in our light bulbs...
