A little water, an Alka-Seltzer tablet, and one of our film canisters, and you've got a rocket! Our canisters are the perfect canisters to use for film canister rockets. (see experiment link below) This is a highly popular and fun activity at any age level with lots of room for experimentation. These canisters have tight-fitting lids that close with an audible "snap!" The fit is tight enough to build up pressure and send the canister 12 feet high or more into the air. Great for demonstrating rocketry, the scientific method, teaching Newton's Laws, or just an unforgettable, high-flying science lesson. Of course, I suppose you could also use it for storing small items. Our new canisters are the standard size of 50mm X 30mm. Includes canisters, caps, and experiment instructions. (You provide the Alka Seltzer/fizzing tablets) Don't forget safety goggles when launching the rockets.
Use these film canisters to build your own film canister rockets. You can get all the instructions and experiment ideas by clicking HERE.

I work at a Library and for summer reading we had SCIENCE this year. We made the rockets with the alka-seltzer from preschoolers to 4th graders and it was a huge hit with all the kids. They worked wonderfully !!! Will use again in the future. Thank you!

I teach 3-6 year olds and they loved making rockets with these canisters. It kept them entertained for a long period of time, and you know with preschoolers that is hard to do!

Bought this for my son's 7th birthday and everyone loved it! Also bought the slime kit and everyone used their empty canister to take some home!

I was looking everywhere for film canisters and so glad to have come across your site! With everything now digital, I was worried I wouldn't be able to find film canisters for a science experiment. The shipping was super fast too!

My shipment came fast, and it was exactly what I wanted.

I ordered these to make alka-seltzer rockets for my son's science themed birthday party. They worked great! Some of the rockets got up to 20 ft high. The containers are very sturdy and the cap had a tight seal. It was a fun way to end a party.
