The Tea Bag Rocket is really an adaptation of a classic science demonstration called the Ditto Paper Rocket. If you're old enough to have experienced Ditto paper, you'll recall the bluish-purple ink and that unforgettable smell of freshly printed copies. (Come to find out... both the Ditto machine solvent and the ink were highly toxic, but no one seemed to care back then.) Each piece of Ditto paper had a sheet of tissue paper that separated the two-part form, and it was this discarded piece of paper that teachers and kids used to make Ditto paper "rockets." Since Ditto paper is a thing of the past, science enthusiasts have found a simple replacement - a tea bag.
