Boom!

Want to fly a rocket? This one won't get you into space, but it might fly over the roof of your house.

Here's what you need:
  • 16 oz plastic pop bottle
  • Rubber stopper or a wine cork (that fits in the opening of bottle)
  • Tablespoon  
  • Baking soda 
  • Strong tape (such as duct tape) 
  • Scissors 
  • Three unused pencils 
  •  Funnel 
  • White vinegar 
  • Paper towel 
  • Safety glasses
  • an adult!
Making rockets is fun, and none of these ingredients is toxic. But there's always a chance that some vinegar could splash out - so make sure you wear your lab goggles or safety glasses - and that you've got an adult supervising the rocket launches.

And here's how you put it all together  (if the video isn't working, go here)
