The Science of Bubbles Show
Come and join Scientific Sue on her latest journey of scientific discovery.
Bubbles: Big, small, bouncing, touchable, floating, sinking.
Bubbles hold many wonders and create lots of excitement!
Have you ever wondered why bubbles float? Why bubbles are round? Can we make bubbles in liquids other than water? What is the secret behind big bubbles? Can we engineer bouncing bubbles?
To answer these and many more questions we have to enter the Magical World of Bubbleology. With the help of lots of volunteers Sue will attempt to show many incredible bubble tricks and then relate them to Science.
The science content of this show depends on the audience. Secondary school pupils will find out about polar liquids and electrostatic forces, surfactants and their uses in bubbles and emulsions, plastics and polymers and how these long chain molecules help us make super gigantic bubbles.
What is the secret to making giant bubbles?
A sample of Curriculum Focus:
• Properties of materials
• Polar and non polar liquids
• Surface tension
• Scientific method
