Alka-Seltzer Rocket

Alka-Seltzer Rocket 

I thought this was pretty cool.  I think it would be great to use in a science class when talking about Chemistry.  I think the students would like a "fun" hands-on activity and would remember more of the material when they have something to relate it to.  One way I might alter the experiment would be to have teams and have a contest to see who's rocket went the furthest.  Not only would Chemistry be taught, Math skills would also be reinforced.
