Policy changes after Maple Grove students burned in science class

| No Comments

The Osseo School District has changed their policy on some science experiments after one student was severely burned on Thursday.
15-year-old Dane Neuberger is recovering at Hennepin County Medical Center from second-degree burns to his face.
"It's better today. At least I can recognize myself," Neuberger says, according to KARE-11.
In what was supposed to be a routine methane experiment, Neuberger was burned when flames shot toward him when the teacher ignited the gas.
A spokesperson for the school district says they have suspended any experiments involving methane for the time being.
Although the science teacher did not want to comment on the events, one parent told KARE-11 that he was a "terrific teacher."
