Students combine intense enjoyment with important concepts in chemistry and physics through imaginative experiments with soap bubbles. They devise an ideal bubble-blowing instrument; test dishwashing brands to see which makes the biggest bubbles; determine the optimum amount of glycerin needed for the biggest bubbles; employ the Bernoulli principle to keep bubbles aloft; use color patterns to predict when a bubble will pop; and create bubbles that last for days.
This guide is packed with solid scientific, technological, and mathematical content and learning. An extensive background section on bubbles is included.
