  • Once the marker is dry add 1-3 tablespoons of  corn starch to each film canister.
  • Then, fill the canisters roughly 1/3 of the way with warm water and stir until combined.

Then it is time to PLAY!

Playing with Flying Ghost Rockets
  • You will want to set off one ghost rocket at a time. 
  • Take a piece of Alka seltzer and break it into 3-4 pieces. 
  • Then, quickly drop the pieces in the canister, put the lid on, flip the rocket over, set it down, and stand back!

These ghosts really fly, too!  Just look at that force of science propelling them!

Extend the Fun
Further explore science by adding varying amounts of ingredients.
  • What happens with more or less Alka seltzer? 
  • What about more or less corn starch? 
We had lots of fun experimenting, and I was surprised to discover that some of the ghosts flew the highest when less ingredients were used.
