2019 Quelab’s Fireless Fourth links and ideas!

Smokey the bear Hostile firework stand takeover.

Greetings Folks!  Here we have the ‘2019 Fireless Fourth’ Science and entertainment demos, that are selected from across the web all year, I believe ive been pushing these out to the friends of Quelab for 8 years now!  The goal is to let people learn while having fun, and letting you explore a little science while saving some money, and if you like me live in a very dry, high fire danger place, perhaps you will get a few people an alternative or a supplement to a personal fireworks display. 

Well at the bottom I will link you back to the previous years Fireless  Fourth posts. And as always please share this around! 

On to the new Links! 

Food

Bald Eagles with Oreos.  

Bomb Fizz Strawberries, 

Take a 50/50 mix of powdered sugar and baking soda,  and mix, then with either freshly washed strawberries, (the tarter the better within reason)  dip the strawberries into the mix and tap to dust off the excess. Now eat them. What does it feel like in your mouth?   -invention made by Adric

Someone decided to scale up an elephant toothpaste experiment.   And it was amusing.
