Rocket Rudolph

Learn how to make Rudolph fly like a rocket with our fun science experiment.

Watch the video from Marvellous Marthy and download our free worksheet below to join in the fun this Christmas! See the chemical reaction between an alkali (bicarbonate of soda) and an acid (white wine vinegar) when you trap the bubbles and turn Rudolph into a flying rocket. You'll only need a few simple items to do this quick and easy science experiment to see reactions in action. (Top tip: you may want to do this one outside, as it can be messy.)

Download our free activity sheet below to get creative.

Oh ho ho, and please do share your experiment highlights with us @IETeducation! #SantaLovesSTEM
