Technicolor Flames with Sandy Roberts

July 2 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

Ever wonder how fireworks get their color?

We’ll explore the chemistry behind colored flames as Sandy demonstrates. Then we’ll learn how to use common hardware store supplies to make color-changing firestarters.

Watch and make LIVE on the Family Maker Camp FB page or on the Make: Kids Youtube channel.

Materials list:
  • Paraffin wax or leftover candles
  • dryer lint or wood shavings
  • paper egg cartons (or paper muffin cups)
  • a double boiler
  • a stove or hot plate
  • copper sulfide (sold as root killer in hardware stores) or potassium chloride (sold as NuSalt in grocery stores)
  • safety goggles
  • gloves
