So you think that bubble making is child’s play? Well, you’re only partially correct. There’s been a lot of scientific investigation of the properties of bubbles and in this program well learn about some of it. See frozen bubbles shatter. Make a bubble that lasts for up to an hour or more. Put one of your friends inside a giant bubble. Learn why some bubbles have a brilliant iridescent sheen. Play with bubbles that bounce on a layer of carbon dioxide gas. See how bubbles filled with air behave in a heavier than air atmosphere. Be amazed as oxygen-filled bubbles are attracted to a magnet.
