It's easy to turn a juice bottle into a rocket launcher. How? Grab a few straws of different sizes, some modeling clay, and an empty juice bottle to make a launcher that will send the straw rocket soaring across the room. Don't worry, you aren't just playing. You'll learn something about Newton's Third Law of Motion at the same time.
- Kool-Aid Burst juice bottle or other flexible plastic bottle
- Modeling clay (Playdough may work, also)
- 2 straws - one large and one small. The larger diameter straw must be able to slip over the smaller straw. The large and small straws from Starbucks work great.
- Safety glasses
