Exploding Pumpkin
Overview:
This short video demonstrates the power of chemical reactions.  The clip was recorded on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, 2006, when the Exploreum staff decided to do a little playing with our food. We called it Left Over Science. When calcium carbide is added to water it causes a chemical reaction.  After a short wait, a spark is added.  The result:  we blew up a pumpkin and we got it on video!

Candy Flamethrower
Overview:
When chemicals react a number of things can happen:  two liquids can form a solid, a gas can be produced, things can change color, OR materials can combust. This video shows what happens when we place an organic substance (a material with a "carbon backbone" like sugar, or wood) into a particular hot and liquefied "oxidizer". The results are extremely exothermic, over 1,500 degrees F exothermic.

Title: Drying Dishes     
Description: In this Science Update, from Science NetLinks, you'll hear how a quirk of dish drying shows off a fundamental idea behind the chemistry of water. Because of their different compositions, plastic takes a lot longer to dry than glass.
