- Duct tape
- 3 pencils or sturdy sticks
- An empty plastic bottle
- Paper towel
- 1 tbsp Baking soda
- The pencils you have are going to be the legs of the rocket. Place each pencil onto the bottle so that it extends beyond the opening of the bottle.
- Secure the pencils by using the duct tape making sure the rocket is stable.
- Turn the bottle right side up and pour some vinegar in it until is half-full by using the funnel.
- Take a paper towel and put 1 tbsp of baking soda on it.
- Fold and wrap the paper towel to make a snug bundle of baking soda.
- Push the bundle of baking soda into the bottle and give it a quick, hard shake.
- Put the bottle upright on the pencils and stand back.
- You will be amazed to see your rocket shooting pretty high.
When you mix vinegar with baking soda, carbon dioxide gas is released because an acid/base reaction is taking place. Vinegar is acetic acid and baking soda is a base, known as sodium bicarbonate.
