Junior scientist Luci teaches us the science behind fire, and shows us how to make a firefighting foam ourselves. To create this incredible foam, you will need two empty bottles, baking soda (1.5 teaspoons), vinegar (100ml), dishwashing liquid (1ml or 20 drops), water (100ml), matches, tea lights and a dash of food dye. The foam occurs when the acidic vinegar combines with the alkaline baking soda, causing a chemical reaction, while the dishwashing liquid stabilises the bubbles.
