Make and launch your own rocket...
- Powered by vinegar and baking soda.
- Supersonic fly over 9 metres high..
- Sir Issac Newton will be proud
Make and launch your very own rocket that will fly up to 9 metres high!
Powered by vinegar and baking soda, this hands on rocket launching kit is great gift for the whole family!
When vinegar is mixed with baking soda inside the rocket body, a gas called "carbon dioxide" is formed. As the chemical reaction takes place, more and more carbon dioxide is produced inside of the rocket until the cavity can hold no more.
The gas accumulated will escape from the bottom of the rocket which results in a "thrust" that forces the rocket upwards!
Your cosmic rocket works using the same principle of motion science as a real rocket, both demonstrate Sir Issac Newton's Law of Motion.
Recommended for ages 8+ due to small parts.
Rocket launching should be performed by an adult or by ages 14+
Vinegar and baking soda not included.
This kit is approved and recommended by the Science Museum of London.
