Saturday as I go behind the scenes
of the incredible match between city
and Wigan. Quarter to eight in the
morning on C BBC. Goodbye.
Ricky here with your
Friday morning Newsround.
First today, children
in the American state of Florida
who survived a shooting
at their school have met
with President Trump and lawmakers.
They went to the capital of Florida
and to Washington DC,
where they talked about the changes
they want to happen...
They went in their hundreds and
wanted to be heard. Children from
the school affected by the shooting
were joined alongside hundreds of
other students in Florida and
Washington, DC. Some of the
survivors of the shooting met with
President Trump because they want
changes to the gun laws so this will
not happen again. Trump suggested if
teachers in America were armed with
guns themselves they might be able
to stop a shooting from happening.
Some people support the President's
suggestion but others say more guns
is not the answer to the problem.
The US leader also said he would
like better checks on the
backgrounds are people who want to
buy guns. While the meeting took
place hundreds of children marched
outside. Many children across
America are planning to come
together in Washington, DC next
month for a protest they have called
March for our lives.

getting the gunners

4-2 win on aggregate.
But Celtic's European
hopes are over.
Despite leading 1-0

out of the Europa League.
Dr Tom has the answer
to an explosive question ?
how are fireworks made?
Dr Tom is an expert,
so please do not try this at home.
Hello, I am Doctor Tom, a fireworks
expert. I am here to answer the big
question this week, which is from
Rees in Cambridgeshire and it is how
fireworks made? A firework is a lot
of different chemical reactions. To
make colours we add metal salt to
the firework mix. So we had a strong
team to get read. Very to get green.
Sodium salts to get yellow. And to
get blue, the most difficult colour
of the lot, you add copper salt to
the mix. What you packed into the
fireworks to make it effective are
called stars. This is a star. This
will burn the Violet and in the
middle it changes the composition
and burns with silver sparks. About
the size of a pea and hundreds of
them are in a firework shell. Black
powder or gunpowder as some call it
is one of the key ingredient in
making byword. It is two purposes.
Sometimes to produce gold sparks of
long duration flowing down to the
ground and making it look pretty but
more often as a propellant to shoot
a shell into the sky or to motor a
rocket. Fireworks sound like
whistles and screeches and they are
made from different types of
chemistry. We press a tiny band of
this composition into the bottom of
the tube and in the rest of the tube
it acts like an organ pipe to
amplify the sound and make a really
loud sound. This is a firework
mortar. It is what is used to fire
the fireworks into the air. We have
hundreds and hundreds of these added
together and the shell goes in here.
The bottom part is for the black
powder to propel the shell into the
air and the top part is full of the
stars reducing the big burst of
colour in the sky.
