These rockets enable students to use design thinking and are effective demonstrations of Newton’s laws of motion. The liftoff power of the rocket is produced by a common acid/base chemical reaction that creates carbon dioxide gas; making this activity an ideal tool for teaching students about chemical reactions and how pressure can do work on objects.
Curriculum topics: Air pressure, Chemical reactions, Forces, Momentum, Motion, Newton’s laws
Kit includes: Idea sheet, 1 film canister, 2 alka-seltzer tablets, 1 piece of adhesive foam
What can keep a simple structure from collapsing during an earthquake?
How will an earthquake, simulated by shaking, affect a "building" made of linked squares? How can the square "stories" be cross-braced to prevent the "walls" from collapsing? What dangers are there in building above a garage? Learn the answers to these questions and more by working with the Brace Yourself model.
