Plastic Bottle Rockets

 

Plastic bottles can often end up as plastic waste.  This the first in a segment of reusing plastic bottles.  Reuse is an excellent way to decrease the amount of plastic waste.  An entertaining way of reusing that plastic bottle is making a bottle rocket.  To create a bottle rocket you will require a bottle, a pump, water, a method of sealing the bottle and a method of stabilising the rocket.  Add the water to the bottle till it is mostly, but not completely full.  Attach the pump and seal the bottle.  Keep the bottle stabilised and pointing away from anything fragile, especially people.  Use the pump to fill the bottle with gas and watch from a safe distance.
