If you are looking for a fun activity to do this weekend, we are going to show you how to build a rocket at home. Don’t worry this rocket is safe for backyard use because all you will need to make it is a straw and some paper. Watch the full video below to learn more.
When you’re all done, we would love to see your results! Share your pictures and videos with us using #ScienceAtPlay.
