KENTUCKY 5/26/2017 — Bubbles are amazing, but have you ever wanted to get inside a bubble? Jason Lindsey aka “Mr. Science” with Hooked on Science uses a few ingredients from around the house to put a kid inside a bubble.  

INGREDIENTS

  • Plastic Wading Pool
  • Water
  • Light Corn Syrup
  • Clear Dishwashing Liquid
  • Hula Hoop
  • Bubble Wand

INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1:  Mix together 6 gallons of water, 2 gallons of clear dishwashing liquid, and 1 galloon of light corn syrup. Describe the mixture by using its observable properties.  
STEP 2:  Dip the bubble wand into the mixture and blow bubbles.
Describe how a bubble can be used as a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.
STEP 3:  Place the hula hoop into the pool, stand a kid in the center of the pool, slowly lift the hula hoop above the kids head, and observe. Describe a bubble by using its observable properties.  

EXPLANATION

A bubble is a thin film of soapy water, filled with air. A bubble contains three main layers. Sandwiched between two soapy layers, is a layer of water. Bubbles burst when this layer of water evaporates. The corn syrup create bonds with the water molecules, slows down the evaporation process, creating a stronger bubble.
