We are exploring chemical reactions.
We experimented using the 'Cosmic Rocket'
In the base of the rocket we had baking soda then the rocket was filled 1/3 with vinegar. Very carefully but quickly we placed the rocket onto its base and moved away. In a matter of seconds the reaction occurred sending the rocket flying in to the air.
Check out the excitement and surprise on the faces of the students. :)
Parents beware the students are keen to try this at home...
