Let's just let kids bring chemicals onto school grounds and mix them together to satisfy their curiosity. If they explode, it's okay as long as A) nobody gets hurt AND B) the kids are only trying to get the chemicals to start smoking. As long as any explosions resulting from untrained teenagers mixing chemicals together before school are unintentional, there will be no consequences. This policy is stern but fair.
Should she be in trouble? Yes. Should she be expelled? Probably. Should she be expelled forever? No. Should she be arrested and charged with “possession/discharge of a weapon on school property and discharging a destructive device"? Hell no.
