Students Explore Science of Bubbles

Have you ever wondered how bubbles work? They are fascinating to children and adults alike. Students at Richland Elementary School had a chance to learn more about the science behind bubbles. It’s all a part of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) initiative. The students created bubbles and bubble blowers.

They learned about solutions and why bubbles are always round, They also generated their own bubble blowers with Styrofoam cups, straws, fabric pieces, and rubber bands.

This hands-on “Bubble Science” assembly was presented by the Carnegie Science Center program.

Studying bubbles also allowed students a chance to study science concepts such as elasticity, surface tension and chemistry.
The program was sponsored by the RE PTO.
