Students design and build a paper rocket around a film canister, which is used as the engine. An antacid tablet and water are put into the canister, react to form carbon dioxide gas, and act as the pop rocket's propellant.

The pop rockets demonstrate Newton's third law of motion: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
