Bubble Bonanza - Tuesday, February 9

Bubble Overview

Students will use the ask step of the Engineering Design Process as they experiment with bubbles, keeping track of what bubbles can and cannot do. Students continue using the ask step as they explore whether the shape of bubble wands affects the shape of resulting bubbles. Students try several wand materials and see how well each works to perform specific tasks. Students use all they have learned about bubbles to imagine, plan, and create a bubble wand that will meet a goal their group sets. The wands must use three materials. Groups focus on the improve step of the Engineering Process as they continue engineering their bubble wands. Groups present their bubble wands and knowledge of the Engineering Process.
