Demonstrating Chemistry: In the Classroom

mediumblue

Summary

Bring fireworks demonstrations into the science lab in a safe and fascinating way, through experiments relating to the KS3/4 science curriculum.

Matthew Tosh, a regular demonstrator on the firework circuit with the appropriate professional qualifications, visits Chew Magna School near Bristol to demonstrate his skills.

His demonstrations include combustion basics, oxidation and oxidising agents, creating a flash, displacement reactions, making your own delay fuse, sparklers, flame colours, and generating thrust.

Matthew shows teachers how to carry out the experiments safely with advice from CLEAPSS.
