Lights, Camera... Liftoff! | Experimonkey | Cool science experiments for kids

Materials

  • Film Canister
  • Alka Seltzer Tablet
  • Water

Procedure

  1. First, and most importantly, go outside. This experiment is very messy.

  2. Pour enough water into the canister so that it is about 1/3 full.

  3. Break one of the Alka-Seltzer tablets in half.

  4. Place the Alka-Seltzer into the canister, close the lid, and step back a safe distance (3-4 meters).

  5. Wait a few seconds... and then watch your film canister rocket go bananas!

Hmm... it seems nobody's added a conclusion for this experiment yet. You can suggest one here.
