Happy 4th of July…Try This at Home
Happy Fourth to everyone. So what is the science angle here? It is all about making some of your own fireworks.
It is pretty easy to make snakes out of baking soda, sugar and alcohol or lighter fluid. For a little fountain, try the famous Diet Coke and Mentos experiment. Sparklers are a little trickier but can be made at home. You can make firecrackers by extracting the powder from toy caps. A patriotic flaming alcoholic density column is a fine addition to any Fourth of July Celebration. You can make smoke bombs and fountains as well.
And all this might make you hungry…top it off with dry ice ice cream.
These are just a few of the many little science experiments you can do…I’ll admit I left off some of the more dangerous ones I know because I want you to have a good Fourth of July!
