Power Labs at the Library

So, once a month a local library does this thing called Power Lab where they do some kind of science experiment with the kiddos.  We have gone before, it was Miss Molly who first introduced us to Mentos and Diet Coke, but we are not regular in attendance.

This month, the newest Children's Librarian showed us Exploding Cobras.  This was pretty cool and Riley is BEGGING me to get a box of craft sticks *sounds like a good Christmas present*!  Anyways, here are a few photos and the not so hot video I was able to capture of it.

This video doesn't begin to explain the coolness of this project (for 11 year old boys anyways) so be sure to search youtube for Cobra Weave Exploding Stick Bomb to see how neat it really is!

Hmm, maybe we should make more of an effort to put this on our calendar and attend Power Labs!

While waiting for my video to upload, I googled it for you!  Here are the instructions on how to make this - and here is a link to a youtube video that is pretty cool ~
