Experimenting with bubbles made of soap film gives children an opportunity to construct relationships about light and color, surface tension, and chemical composition.  Children – and adults too! -- engage in inquiry when seeking answers to such questions as:  How can I hold a bubble without letting it pop?  Can I make a square bubble?  How can I make a bubble with a fork? 

Workshop format:  face-to-face

Length of workshop:  3 hours

Number of participants:  limited to 24
