The ingredients in fireworks are pretty basic – just a mix of mostly black gunpowder and combinations of metal salts that give these star-like explosions their fabulous colors. But that simple, combustible fusion can make any event feel more romantic, exciting or in the case of this Independence Day, much more Amurrican. If you want to learn more about how these detonations work before they come to a local park near you, this weekend’s Kaboom! Show at the Orlando Science Center is the perfect place. OSC scientists put on a 25-minute fireworks show in the Digital Adventure Theater with latex balloons and some loud explosions. If you go, prepare for screaming children, because the “kaboom” part is in the title for a reason. Instead of the standard burgers and beer, get your Fourth of July started this weekend with a little more pow.
