Tea Bag Rocket
Most of us use it to create a batch of tea, but according to “Science Guy” Jason Lindsey with Hooked on Science, you can also use that tea bag to create a rocket. Always use adult supervision when performing experiments.
STEP 1: Remove the staple and string from the tea bag.
STEP 2: Open the tea bag and remove the tea leaves.
STEP 3: Open the bag to form a cylinder.
STEP 4: Place the bag onto a flat surface outside, away from anything that might catch fire.
STEP 5: Using the grill lighter ignite the top of the tea bag.
The fire heats up the air around the tea bag causing the air to rise. As the tea bag burns it loses some mass. Therefore the lighter tea bag rises with the rising warm air. You can discover more hands-on experiments by going to hookedonscience.org.
