Stick-Chain Reaction

We're exploring potential/stored energy using a cobra weave stick chain reaction.

You may have seen something similar on America's Got Talent with the Kinetic King. But, more than just how to do it, we explore the science behind why these chain reactions made with jumbo craft sticks work.

Mr. O’s “O Wow Moments” help you to become an scientist at home with hands-on, minds-on experiments and demos! Watch Mr. O every Saturday morning during the 7 a.m. news on Houston's KPRC Local 2 to see a new science demo you can try at home. Share your experiments with us on facebook and Instragram!
