Launching a Bottle Rocket

How kids learn about biology today…

How we learned about biology in the seventies…

Want to do something fun?  Try launching a bottle rocket like we did yesterday.  Here is an actual video.   The cool kid doing the launching is Jake.  Clearly you’ll want to move the bicycle pump as far away from the rocket as the cord will allow and maybe throw on a pair of goggles…since you’ll notice Jake nearly lost his face. Oops.  He, however, did not lose his face, but we did lose the rocket.  After the video, you’ll find a few links on how you, too, can launch a bottle rocket.
