Ever wanted to make a rocket that really flies high? Or impress your friends about your stellar knowledge on the topic?
Well, you've come to the right place! Find out about the largest rocket to ever be made, as well as the most powerful, and learn how to actually make one yourself (well, not quite a life-sized version). Follow our short video to learn how to make a rocket with household items, and have fun in the process!
Download our worksheet below for step-by-step instructions on how to make your very own rocket.
But how can we overcome gravity to launch our homemade rockets into the sky? Might seem relatively simple, but which homemade fuel makes the best rocket?
We put three different types of rocket to the test, to see which one is the most effective. Watch our experiment to find out which rocket worked the best, and we will show you exactly how to build it. We tried and tested it for you to see which one will take off... literally.
Want to learn more? We also can teach you how to see like an animal, how to speak dinosaur (!) and more. Unlock your inner scientist with #GetOutThere on BBC Earth Kids YouTube…
