A rocket that is kid friendly and fun to make. 

We have seen many kids enjoy this project. Not only do they like the loud pop and seeing their rockets go up, they take great pride in building their own rocket.

The rocket can be just for fun or can be a great opportunity to learn / discuss some science.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
    35m canister with lid that snaps closed inside the canister.
    Effervescent tablet like Alka-Seltzer. Generic works fine.
    Water dropper
    Water
    Typing paper (any paper will do)
    Tape
    Scissors
    Ruler
    Markers, colored pencils, crayons
    Safety goggles
    Something round to trace

Vinegar and baking soda can be substituted for the Alka-Seltzer and water.  We just like to use the tablets for ease.
