Balloon Rocket Experiment
You need to send a message to home from your tree house, but it’s too windy to send a paper airplane! Fortunately, you have a taut clothesline and a supply of balloons from last week’s birthday party. How can you make a balloon rocket, and how can you make it travel as far as possible?
How does the volume of air in a balloon affect the distance it travels?
