I remember doing this ‘Magic Tea Bag Rocket’ in Science class in Primary School. I loved it then and I still love it now! Now that the kids have grown a little, I thought it was high time I show them this amazing little experiment!
*make sure this is supervised by an adult at all times, is done in an area with no wind & that you have a fire extinguisher on hand.
Check out our YouTube Clip below!
To do this yourself you will need:
Lighter or matches
Take your Tea bag and snip off the top with the scissors, empty out the tea leaves into the bin or a separate container
Unfold the tea bag and hollow it out using your finger
Stand your tea bag upright onto the plate and light both sides with the lighter/matches
Stand back and watch the magic begin!
