Radical Ron from Mad Science starts an afternoon of science lessons with a demonstration of the properties of flash paper for students at the Potter Junior High Unit of the Boys and Girls Clubs of North County on Feb. 17.
Under the direction of Radical Ron, Potter student Josue Martinez adds some more vinegar to a mixture containing baking soda to create gaseous bubbles while fellow student Andrea Ordonez looks on. The workshop was donated by Time Warner Cable as part of its Connect a Million Minds campaign to promote science and math education.
