Blast Off: Converting Chemical Energy Into Kinetic Energy!

The Form II Physical Science class members were tasked to design simple rockets using vinegar and baking soda as an extra credit project over a recent weekend. Their teacher, Melodie Ting, explains: "The classic baking soda and vinegar reaction has been seen over and over again in making volcanoes erupt. The boys were tasked to take that same concept and build a rocket out of water bottles. We have been studying different forms of energy in class, and the basic idea of this project was to take chemical energy (baking soda and vinegar reaction), and convert it into kinetic energy (rocket blasting off!)." Watch the results in the below video.
