We will be starting a model rocket program at our squadron in the next few months.  The first step of that program will be to build and fly a rocket using an alternate means of propulsion (not a model rocket engine).

Here is one such rocket that we will build based on alkaseltzer tablet and water in a 35mm film container.

second version will be this one a baking soda vinegar rocket in a common water bottle.
