This year of making videos has been awesome! Making something and then making a video about how to make it every week has been an incessant and intense year! Let’s celebrate by making a jam jar jet!

This pulse jet works by igniting a flame, which pushes the gas out of the jar and then bit of a vacuum that it leaves sucks the air back in and the circle is repeated. Watch the video and download the pdf to learn how to make it!

I haven’t done this alone, the guests on the show have brought their expertise to it. Thanks to everyone who’s been a part of this show! Also, thanks to you for watching and commenting!

Weekend Projects is sponsored by Microchip Technology. Check out their seminars and the Microchip Masters Conference.

  1. Giant geekly congrats on a wonderful year of podcasts, Bre! I look forward to the show every week and am always informed, entertained, and inspired. Can’t wait to see what the next year of weekends brings us.

  2. I made one of these a couple of months ago. You can see it here.
    I also got some video of it in action here. I didn’t get any shots at night, so there’s no fancy colors – just neat sounds.

  3. I remember making one of these inadvertently when I was 11 years old. I took an old style conical shaped Old Spice bottle that my dad just discarded and put a match up to the opening. The fumes caught immediately and I roasted my thumb. It was AWESOME!

  4. It’s been more than a couple years and Weekend Projects is still one of my favorite podcasts. Thanks for all the great shows and ideas. I keep coming back to this episode It has always been one of my favorites. I don’t know. Maybe it is lighting stuff on fire. Heck that is why I got into rocket science in the first place. Keep up the great work. Here’s to many more Weekend Project Birthdays!
