Mister C - Science is lit!

Use flames to observe how a tornado behaves

We typically don’t associate fire with tornadoes, but today we are going to use flames to observe how a tornado behaves! Tornadoes occur when warm hair and cold air collide to create a powerful rotation.  Creating a fire tornado takes that same idea and illustrates it.  The hot flames begin and then spun with the screen enclosing the fire causing cool airto come rushing through the screen’s holes and squeezing the flame and forcing the warm air/flame to rise in the center. The faster you spin, the higher the flames rise!  
Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, teacher, or friend, we can all take the time to help kids reach their full potential. Mister C invites you all to join him to explore the wonders of the world around us to LEARN TOGETHER!  
When Mister C is not in the lab experimenting or in the studio dropping beats, he loves to connect with other learners online. Share how you’re having fun learning this week and use #LearnTogetherDayton to show everyone what you have learned with Mister C!
