S4894: Making Giant Bubbles: A Hands-On Chemistry Class in Splash Spring 2024 (Apr. 06, 2024)
Have you ever seen a bubble as big as you floating in the sky? More importantly, have you ever wanted to make one? You’ll learn the steps to create giant bubbles – we'll go over what goes into the formula, and the chemistry of why it works. During the class, you'll learn about the interactions between soap and water that make bubbles form, and then build your own specialized bubble wand to test the theory. At the end of the class, we’ll all go outside and test out our wands with some bubble solution, and you'll get to go home with a bubble wand and a recipe to replicate our giant bubbles!
