Alka-Seltzer Cannons

The scientific method is emphasized in this engaging and exciting chemistry lesson. Learners get to create Alka-Seltzer cannons out of film cannisters, water, and Alka-Seltzer tablets. Carbon dioxide gas builds up inside the cannister, causing the top to blow off! Pairs of students work together to predict, carry out the experiment, and record their results.
