Curious about the powerful blasts that rockets create? Rockets get their forward push from a reaction engine so they thrust themselves forward by ejecting mass (that shoots backward) at high speed from their rear end. Investigate how the air pressure you create in a bottle rocket before launching changes the maximum height it reaches once launched by doing this activity.  Click HERE for complete instructions.
