Very preliminary information, but look at the quote by the five-year old witness: http://abc13.com/news/12-children-injured-by-blast-during-experiment/1999709/
"Fire was changing colors and the last one wasn't working, so we put it a little bit more, and then it exploded," said Kate Earnest, a 5-year-old who was part of the group that participated in the experiment. "That's how the other kids got burned, and they were crying."
I hope the Houston prosecutor doesn't give this teacher a free pass. He or she should be criminally prosecuted for wanton endangerment which is, apparently, in most jurisdictions defined as "conduct which creates a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury to another person." It's time to stop calling these injuries "accidents"
