This is a great afternoon project!
The grand finale exploding stick bomb spectacular is FANTASTIC!
A GREAT science activity: Each stick is bent slightly and can not wait to straighten up when released. This creates potential energy.
The sticks rely on tension to stay together and when one is removed they all fly into the air and create a wonderful chain reaction. It is awesome to watch!!
Now for the important part, we could not do this alone…
