Celebrating science, Kate the Chemist teaches Stephen Colbert how to breathe fire – and a little something about fireworks.

I hope you enjoy

Please note these death defying acts are being done with the help of an experienced (mad) scientist – in order to demonstrate just how fun Chemistry can be – with the appropriate laboratory equipment.

Weird Strawberry

Do you have a burning science question you need answered – or just want to know something about the Miss Lionheart books? Well, now you have a chance to have all those pesky questions answered. The weirder the better. So far Lilly’s fended off questions about strawberries and zombies, so throw her a curve-ball. See if Lilly knows her stuff by dropping by at  askmisslionheart.tumblr.com

You could even ask her some questions about her story. But I can’t promise she will tell you the truth. At least not all the truth. Miss Lionheart likes to play her cards close to her chest, so everybody is kept guessing as to what she might do next. Especially me.

Science is an art, and mad science doubly so, with much of it is based on real science, crazy theories, and even a little mythology. So find out more at askmisslionheart.tumblr.com at http://askmisslionheart.tumblr.com/ and have fun! Because science is about having fun and playing with the world. And a large part of that is about asking why? Why is the sky blue? Why is my little brother taller than me? What is the difference between adult stupidity and adult condescension? Why is this strawberry growing little strawberry plants? Are zombies real?
