Chemistry can be fun. Gummy bears can be fun. To be honest, I’ve no idea whether potassium chlorate is usually fun. I suspect most things with “chlorate” in their name tend to be more serious than fun. However, that should stop us – or some brave soul at the St. Albans Science Department – mixing a gummy bear with potassium cholorate to see if it’s fun.
Well. What do you think?
Fun or oh-my-god-that-looked-dangerous? Or both? Yeah. I thought so too!
