Impress your friends this weekend!
“Popular Mechanics” did a great write-up on the science behind different types of fireworks.
Why do the ones you shoot in the air have different patterns?
How do sparklers burn so slowly?
Those ones you throw on the ground and they pop? Why does that work?
They also look at the kinds of fireworks with names like Green Bees, Saturn Red Blue, Willow, and Spiderman!
