Baking Soda and Vinegar Rocket
All the materials you will need are very simple house hold; scissors, balloon, vinegar, baking soda, rubber band, empty bottle, clear wrap, straight pin, marker, thin piece of wood, drinking straws, and duct tape. One of the first steps is to make the rocket fuel the key component in this rocket. I began with placing ¼ or 1/3 of vinegar in a normal size bottle, after that you will make the baking soda bomb. You take a piece of clear wrap and place a good amount of baking soda in a square piece wrap up all the corners and wrap it up tight so it won’t come undone on accident, place it to the side for later use. You also need to a balloon and marker and straight pin for the next part. You will take the balloon and cut off a part where it will fit over the mouth of the bottle easily. Then take your marker and mark a spot where it is directly in the middle of the top and then use your straight pin and poke a hole in the top. Once this is all prepared lay the balloon and a rubber band over to the side separately. Once everything is ready you need to build a launcher, you can use a thin piece of wood lay on the ground at a 45 degree angle. You should attach a drinking straw on to the bottle to hold it in to place on the wood. After all is in place put the Baking soda bomb in to the bottle of vinegar and quickly put the balloon and rubber band on the bottle. Then place it on the piece of wood, you will only have a few seconds to do this entire thing so act fast. When you do this project you will need to be very careful and work fast because if you don’t watch out it will go off in your hands or worse your face. Be careful to follow it all very closely or it all could go wrong.
