Experiment with the whimsical wonder of bubbles! Since ancient times, people have been fascinated by the unique properties of soap bubbles. See for yourself why these elegantly simple structures of soap, water, and air are still studied by scientists, modeled by mathematicians, emulated by architects, and immortalized by artists and writers. Mix the best bubble solution. Learn about the love-hate relationship between soap and water. Blow giant bubbles, mini-bubbles, bubbles within bubbles, chains of bubbles and bubble blankets. Discover how a bubble's color can reveal when it will pop. Build soap film domes, roofs, and bridges. Investigate the theory of minimal surfaces with geometrically shaped bubbles. Make a soap bubble last all day. Challenge your friends to a bubble tennis match. A full-color, 48-page experiment manual guides you through 35 frothy, foamy, and fun experiments.

Thames & Kosmos Bubble Science Kit

Soap and water sometimes have a difficult relationship: So much tension, with very little merging into one another. But this is a good thing, if you love bubbles. With the Thames & Kosmos Bubble Science Kit, you'll discover how soap bubbles demonstrate the physics principles of minimal surface vs. equal-sided air pressure, and what "constant mean curvature" is all about. Plus, using the 3D templates provided, youêll get to make a variety of crazy forms, including bubble chains and bubbles within bubbles. Did you know the color on the bubble's filmy surface can indicate when it's about to pop? A 48-page book guides you through more than 30 experiments, tricks, and bubble-making history.
