    Build a water bottle rocket launcher and rocket. Using images or a video, post about your rocket and its flight.

    • For this can I do a baking soda and vinegar rocket? I would use a water bottle filled with vinegar then put some baking soda in it, put the cap on, shake it up, and it shoots up. It’s a type of water bottle rocket. If I can’t what are you looking for?
