Tomorrow is the Fourth of July and that means there will be fireworks displays in towns all over the United States. My little town is having small display that we’ll actually be able to see from our backyard. And this year my kids are old enough to stay up to see the fireworks display. Of course, that also means they’re old enough to ask “how do fireworks work?” 

If your kids are also curious about how fireworks work, take a look at the following videos from NPR’s SkunkBear, National Geographic, and Reactions to learn about the science of fireworks.
