Can you make a lightsaber in Minecraft Java Edition & Bedrock Edition?

Unfortunately, compounds do not exist in the Java edition, meaning you can't use chemicals to create glow st... I mean, lightsabers, ice bombs, and other cool things. If you're playing Bedrock Edition, you'll need to activate the Enable Cheats option and then enable the Education Edition option before creating your world. Now, you can become a true Minecraft scientist!
