Grades: K – 2; Physical Science, Chemistry
Everywhere you look, bubbles can be found in our everyday lives-bubble gum, bubbles in soda, and air bubbles in a fish tank. Before visiting the exhibits, students will blow bubbles in water to observe how long they will retain their shape before they pop. The first exhibit students visit, Soap Film Painting, demonstrates what colors can be seen reflecting off the surface of a bubble.
The students will then blow bubbles in "bubble juice" to study what shape bubbles are, as well as reinforce what colors reflect off of their surface. At the Soap Films exhibit, the Virtual Visit Explainer will experiment with different shaped bubble wands, illustrating the various shapes bubbles can take. Following Soap Films, the students will attempt to make different shaped bubbles using an assortment of bubble wands. They will find that no matter what shape they blow through, the bubbles will always take the shape of a sphere. At the concluding exhibit, Soap Bubbles, the Virtual Visit Explainer will demonstrate how to make different sized bubbles.
