Bottle Rocket

My son chasing a bottle rocket, scout style...

The scouts had their bottle rocket event today.  The kids made rockets out of 2 liter soda bottles, then the leaders shot them off w/ water & compressed air.  Acually a pretty cool outing, and everyone had a lot of fun.  Here's a couple of videos from my little point-n-shoot camera:

Above is the rocket we built at home....  below is the rocket we made at the event:

That is so cool! I remember doing this in scouts. Basically a chemical rocket.
