The Science Experiment that was Always Going to go Wrong

Talk about a science experiment that didn’t turn out well:

A teacher on the New South Wales Central Coast has pleaded not guilty to assault charges, after he allegedly dared a group of students to hold dry ice with their bare hands.

Damien Hilton is facing eight charges, including cause grievous bodily harm by neglect, after a group of Terrigal High School students were injured during his science class earlier this year.

The 49-year-old, who was employed as a casual teacher, is accused of daring 10 children to hold dry ice for as long as they could.

The students were treated for burns, with two taken to hospital.

Hilton faced Gosford Local Court today and pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The matter has been adjourned until next month.
