Science Show

Humans have marveled at fire since its discovery. But how is fire made? What is a fuel, and how does it burn? Students will learn about early fire-making tools and the three basic elements needed for a fire. Observe how various fuels ignite and behave; and find out if different gases, such as hydrogen, oxygen, and helium, will combust. With action-packed experiments, this show ends with a bang! Fire safety and fire prevention tactics are emphasized throughout the program.
