SURFACE TENSION & BUBBLES
Purpose: To teach students the dynamics of surface tension and how it affects water. We will be using bubbles to demonstrate these concepts, as bubbles are a fun and easy medium through which to demonstrate these principles. The students will develop their hand eye co-ordination and predicting and thinking skills.
Location: Outdoors on the beach or indoors in recreation hall. Find an area that is protected from the wind for the bubble stations. On a really windy day, do this indoors. Damp days are preferable as the conditions are more suitable for bubbles.
