Set it on Fire

Timothy got a blue ribbon for his Science Fair Project, but even better than that, he was really excited about it.  It is not a common occurrence for him to be excited about a large homework project, I assure was a picture taking opportunity.

Chris helped Timothy come up with the idea and provided motivation, and Gramps helped him with the building plan, supplies, construction and operation of the project (thank you Gramps!) All Timothy cared about was that he'd get to do something with FIRE.  When he got to add music into the mix, he was one happy camper.  His presentation was about the principle of sound waves, which he demonstrated with a Standing Wave Flame Tube.  He had a great time demonstrating it at the Science Fair; he got a fantastic response & drew a continual crowd.  Here are some pics:
