We made rockets using fizzy vitamin tablets and yoghurt drink bottles. The tablet and the water worked together in the bottle to make carbon dioxide gas, and this built up inside the bottle until it was strong enough to pop the lid off and send the bottle into the air in the opposite direction!
Real rockets work like this, shooting the astronauts up into space!
