Make/watch a "Burp Rocket"

The video didn't post so I'll work on that tonight.  Sorry.  It's pretty cool to watch the rocket take off. :)
With just three simple supplies you can make this amazingly fun "rocket" with your children.  We learned about it last week from Aurora Lipper, a science lady who does stuff like this all the time.  You will be amazed!  Here's DJ's version.

Needed:  A white film canister (the lid needs to snap inside, so the black kind doesn't work)
               an effervescent tablet (like Alka-seltzer, but a generic brand is fine)
