My chemistry teacher gave us a task for the science fair, make the most impressive experiment you can and explain everything that led to that experiment as well as the reaction. So my team and I decided to make Thermite. The idea came to me when we were trying to do hot ice, I was like seriously... we want to win with hot ice? This isn't elementary school. So I turned on the TV and Mythbuster's Hindenburg episode was on I watched it and went to youtube.com and looked up for thermite after some researching I learned the background knowledge of the reaction and made my own mixture. Here it is.
