We recently completed our Alka-Seltzer Rocket Experiment and had great fun designing, building and launching our rockets. We learned a great deal about Newton’s Third Law and reinforced our knowledge of the Scientific Method. In addition, we were able to use some art and engineering design principles.
We created a worksheet that students can use to:
- Review Newton’s Third Law and the Scientific Method
- Record launch data
- Write-up experiment
We also created a page dedicated to creating and launching Alka-Seltzer rockets so that your students can build them, too. If you like, you can watch our short video on our Alka-Seltzer rocket launches.
