Mrs. Smith’s AP Chem Lab class launched the year with an experiment measuring chemical reactions. The students used the reaction created when baking soda is mixed with vinegar in a film canister to propel the rockets they had created out of manila folders. Their rockets varied in size and structure. The students’ goal was to see if they could get a rocket to take off one meter off the ground, and they had a little fun while doing it! Mrs. Smith said it was one of the most entertaining labs she has ever done with a class.
