Energy and Change

My project was about what happens when you add Alka-Seltzer to water. This makes a little rocket. I wanted to see if different amounts of Alka-Seltzer would make the rocket go higher. I chose this project because I want to know how strong Alka-Seltzer is. My result was that it will make a tiny rocket go up over 3 inches. The conclusion is that Alka-Seltzer is strong and fizzy.
