On Monday afternoon as part of our science we made rockets and looked at the science behind how rockets get to space. The children mixed ENO powder with water, which is a fizzy powder. When we added the powder to water, it produces a harmless gas caked carbon dioxide. This is what makes fizzy drinks fizz. The gas builds up inside the rocket, building up pressure, until eventually the rocket is blasted off.
We had lots of fun! Some rockets went really high.
