Charlie is going to a lab which he thinks is a hospital to take different tests on with a mouse who is already part of the experiment . He is doing this so scientist can see if they want to use him for an experiment dealing with I.Q

  • Charlie then is picked for the experiment by the scientists. The experiment he undergoes is a tripling of his I.Q. Nothing started happening till a couple days after the operation. Then he has a great improvement to his spelling and reading skills. His self-awareness also grows because he understands why others always want him around to make fun of him. His level of intelligence is very evident that it tripled because of the operation.
  • Denouement
