10th Garry Oak – Bottle Rockets

For Science Week we made and launched bottle rockets. We discovered the power of vinegar and baking soda and what happens when they are mixed together. We made bottle rockets out of plastic bottles and attached pencils for launching legs. We then added vinegar and baking soda and a cork to the bottle and watched the two substances react. We were able to launch rockets to the height of about 30 feet. Everyone enjoyed this project and we may even do it again this year.
