Rosie Girl Veronica is putting propulsion – a force that pushes or drives an object forward – to work by making marshmallow propellers (or confetti cannons – you choose)!
Propulsion and this project rely on Newton’s third law of motion: that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Be sure to identify the action and equal and opposite reaction that occurs as you launch your marshmallows!
