Product Info

film-canister-dimensions.png 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.

  1. rockets

    Posted by Unknown on 07 27 2014

    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!

  2. Perfect!

    Posted by Unknown on 02 24 2014

    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!

  6. Great Ordering Experience

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

  7. Party Rockets

    Posted by Unknown on 02 02 2014

    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.

  8. Film canister rockets!

    Posted by Rocket Lady on 01 16 2014

    I absolutely love it that you had these canisters. I like to have my students make rockets out of them. They design their rocket using matallic paper and then we go outside and shoot them off. I have been doing this with them for years but always had to go around town begging for the canisters. I have not been able to do this experiment for years because nobody uses 35mm anymore. Thanks so much!!!

  9. Fun for the Kids

    Posted by Unknown on 12 09 2013

    Fast shipping. Clear and easy instructions. Hours of entertainment for the kiddos.

  10. The Best Science Experiment so far!

    Posted by Rachel on 12 08 2013

    We enjoyed using these film canisters for alka seltzer rockets for one of our homeschool community science experiments. It was a huge hit with the students! Thank you Science Bob for making this product available and providing the instructions for such a fun activity.
