DETENTION
Where do you go when you get busted for bad behavior? Detention of course! But just like those Club kids who made detention rock, Chabot's NightSchool is for the leaders in science cool, not for the misguided of school. Indulge in a night of acting up and acting out with our misfit science activities including graffiti taggin', tattoo inkin' and more mad science.
