Film canister rockets

This is my science project I did with Mrs Cowels. She taught us about what happens when we combine two things together, like wet and dry things. We used school iPads to take photos for our slides. Makere, Te Aranga mai and I had watched our science project pop up into the sky and then got writing again on our Chromebooks about how our project worked and our experiment.
