Bicarb Soda Rocket

A bicarb soda rocket science experiment is a fun and easy way to learn about the science of rockets. It is a great experiment for kids of all ages, and it can be done with simple materials that you probably already have at home.

To make a bicarb soda rocket, you will need the following materials:

  • An empty 2-liter soda bottle
  • A cork
  • Vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Paper towel
  • A spoon
  • A launch pad (optional)


  1. Clean the soda bottle and dry it thoroughly.
  2. Place the cork in the mouth of the bottle.
  3. Wrap the baking soda in a piece of paper towel.
  4. Spoon the baking soda into the bottle.
  5. Pour the vinegar into the bottle.
  6. Stand the bottle upright on the launch pad (optional).
  7. Stand back and watch your rocket launch!

The baking soda and vinegar react together to produce carbon dioxide gas. This gas builds up pressure inside the bottle, which eventually causes the cork to pop out. The force of the gas escaping from the bottle propels the rocket into the air.

You can experiment with different amounts of baking soda and vinegar to see how it affects the height of your rocket. You can also try different shapes and sizes of bottles to see how they affect the flight of your rocket.

This is a great experiment for kids to learn about the science of rockets. It is also a fun and exciting experiment that kids will love.
