Can the Powder Inside an Etch a Sketch Be Used to Make Thermite?

Grant Thompson “The King of Random” partnered with What’s Inside? to find out if the powder inside an Etch a Sketch can be used to make thermite. The powder did not give quite the reaction the team was hoping for, but they still gave their Etch a Sketch test subjects a fiery farewell.

Dan and Lincoln from What’s Inside? made a separate video that gets into more detail about the inner workings of the Etch a Sketch.

So much fire. So much destruction! Lincoln & Dan from What’s Inside help extract powder from an etch a sketch to see if it’ll make thermite.
