iLabs: The Chemistry behind those firework colors!
If you are out and about this July 4th, stop by the Micro World iLab to find out just what chemicals cause the amazing display of color in fireworks. We have a quick iPad activity to give you all you’d like to know about this.
Also we have handouts in the lab you can take to your local fireworks display in case you’re one of those people who wants to yell out chemical names instead of “oooooh and ahhhh” while watching colorbursts in the sky! 🙂
Here’s the poster, available through a Creative Commons shared post at the “Compound Interest” website in case you want to print your own! 🙂 Have a happy July 4th weekend!!!!
