Step 1: Materials
- A plastic bottle with top
- Water; optional
- Air compressor with air nozzle
- We found a vice to be very helpful
Step 2: Making the Rocket
1. Drill a hole through the top. Your hole should be big enough for you to be able to stick your air compressor's nozzle through it. We used a vice to hold the bottle in place while we drilled in the hole.
2. Set your air compressor anywhere between 80-100 psi. Anything more than 100, and you're flirting with danger in the form of exploding plastic.
Step 3: Launch!
