"Sparkling" With Chemistry

Sparkling With Chemistry

The science of chemistry governs the breathtaking fireworks display that we see on the Fourth of July. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn about the chemical composition of sparklers, by examining the compounds that can be used to produce a variety of colorful sparks. They will then apply this knowledge to make and ignite sparklers of their own.
