Catherine wheel

Firework fun

I searched and searched and searched....and now I know. There are NO safe firework experiments for you to do at home!

So, in the spirit of Bonfire Night and firework fun, here's a great slo-mo film of a Catherine wheel from National Geographic.

How do the fireworks make the Catherine wheel turn round? How many tubes are alight at one time?

Hope you enjoyed the video. Have a great Bonfire Night!
