History Tuesday:
As the kids got ready for their weekly Detox Bath (their favorite night by far due to glow sticks! πŸ€—πŸ˜†) I wondered where those magic sticks originated from. Read on to learn more!
πŸ›Glow sticks were created when scientists were trying to replicate the light from fireflies.
πŸ›In the 1960s the first glow stick patent was given to Edwin Chandross of Bell Labs
πŸ› Various scientists worked over the next few years to improve the first design
πŸ› In 1973 the Navy received a patent for a glow stick of their own design
πŸ› Glow sticks were popularized in the 1980s
πŸ›Our favorite times to use glow sticks are while camping ⛺️ and in our weekly "Glow Stick Baths" (detox bath)
