Procedure

  1. Step 1

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

  2. Step 2

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

  3. Step 3

    Break one of the Alka-Seltzer tablets in half.

  4. Step 4

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

  5. Step 5

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