In this instructable I am going to teach how to make a rocket out of a soda can. It really simple to create and only takes a minute or two.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
For this quick project you need:
1 Empty Soda Can
1 Pair of Scissors
1 Fire Cracker
Lighter or Matches
Step 2: Cut Up the Can
Now take your scissors and cut the can in half.
Step 3: Strip the Cracker (That Was Not Supposed to Be a Joke)
Now you need to take apart the fire cracker leaving only one cracker left connected to the main fuse. Then Slip it in the drinking hole of the soda can and connect both sides of the can to each other.
Step 4: Take Er Out Side
Now take the soda can out side and set the can with hole facing down and the fuse sticking out the side. Then light it and run like hell.
Update: Youtube took down my video because it said it was inappropriate. WTF mate. I looked there code of conduct and it talks about not making bombs. Maybe it was taken down because of that. It makes me really made that they took it down!!! So I uploaded it google video!
