Day 5: Fizzy rockets

Today we launched fizzy rockets using fizzy tablets and water.
The tablets dissolved in the water, causing a reaction that made carbon dioxide gas.
This gas built up in the canister, causing pressure in the canister.
The pressure eventually caused the lid canister rocket to explode.
It was very exciting.

Everyone in the class had a turn at launching the rocket after the initial demonstration time.
It was a really exciting time for us.
Here are all the rockets we launched this week:
We also saw a wonderful video about Paxi (the European Space Agency mascot) exploring the solar system.
Have a look, it is really interesting:
