Science of Bubbles is FUN!

On Wednesday evening, 27 people were gathered in the children’s room at the library to learn about Bubbles! Mrs. Valente set up many tools and different solutions for making bubbles.

Which solutions worked the best and why? Would you get a square bubble if the tool was square? Could you make a bubble with just your hands? These questions and more were answered and fun was had by all!

This is the first in a series of Library Labs. Thank you Mrs. Valente! More wonderful activities coming soon!
