Try out this science experiment... watch this video tutorial to learn how to make a simple rocket with film canisters. This is purely educational, and demonstrates the reaction of an Alka-Seltzer tablet, toilet paper, and water. If you don't have Alka-Seltzer, you can substitute it with baking soda, then substitute the water with vinegar.
This is the perfect home experiment. Make a simple rocket using old film canisters or pill bottles. Make sure that you choose a bottle with a snap lid; do NOT use a threaded or childproof lid. It would be a good idea to wear goggles, as you only have one set of eyes.
This is an easy science experiment you can do right at home. Just be careful.
