Discover the science behind rocket propulsion and navigation!

How do we launch rockets into space? How do rockets propel themselves? Why do rockets have a nose cone and fins? 

Join us on this science lab and use simple tools to build a bottle rocket and its launch base. For your rocket’s propellant you will use citric acid and baking soda. When the aqueous solutions of these chemical compounds react, they produce gas under pressure which will propel your rocket a few meters high.
