    Coca Cola bottles, - water rockets.

    Compare the heights achieved between a plain coke bottle, one with a weighted nose cone, and one with a nose cone and tail fins. Explain your findings!

    THere are kit rockets you can build (Estes, ect...) or go from scratch depending on your skill level, and what you want to demonstrate in the project, also depending on exactly what your school will allow as far as liability concerns go.
