World Science Festival What's Happening Inside Those 4th of July Fireworks Fireworks have come a long way since they were first invented in ancient China. As early as 200 BC, people had found that they could create loud bangs by throwing bamboo shoots into a fire; when heated, the air pockets inside the plant expand rapidly and the bamboo explodes with a violent crack. But it wasn’t until after the Chinese invented early forms of gunpowder around the 7th century that fireworks really took off—literally as well as figuratively. Global trade with China over the next 1,000 years brought polytechnic science to the Middle East, Europe and the New World; any large public celebration, from a royal coronation to religious holidays, featured a fireworks display as its grand finale. America’s Fourth of July fireworks tradition began with its very first Independence Day in 1777.

What is a cell? Cells are the basic building blocks of all living things. The human body is composed of trillions of cells. They provide structure for the body, take in nutrients from food, convert those nutrients into energy, and carry out specialized functions.
