Kids Club: Indoor Fireworks

Can't get enough fireworks?  Come and play with fireworks indoors!  We'll even provide  a hint of the usual fireworks noise as we participate in nonflammable, hands-on activities that explore fireworks: how the way a firework is packaged impacts the results of the “explosion”, and how much fireworks creators can control the shape of fireworks.
