Any science teachers out there?

I was looking up some info on tracking and came across this:

http://www.trackertrail.com/survival/fire/cokeandchocolatebar/index.html

Which does work by the way. I very nearly burned down a house at Scout camp with this method once. This would be a cool challenge for a high school science class of some kind. Make a fire using a Coke can and a chocolate bar and no matches or lighter.

Seems like it would make a good girl/boy scout camping thing. I really wish I'd been in a more camping/wilderness survival-competent troup.

Somehwere on the parent site is the "recipe" for making an alcohol stove with a Pepsi can. That is a great experiment too. You should challenge you students to come up with as many ways of making fire as they can without matches or lighters.

Heh...that sounds like a great idea, but for some reason red flags are going up all over the place in my mind. I think you should meet my students before you suggest something like that :)

You bet your sweet bippy!





What is a bippy anyway? And why are people always being asked to wager theirs?
