Engineers at Work!

Bubble BonanzaNov15

You don’t have to be an adult to be an engineer! An engineer is anyone who uses his or her creativity and knowledge to design something to solve a problem. Students at Maker’s Clubhouse are using their skills as engineers to uncover the mystery behind bubbles. Have you ever actually thought about what a bubble is? Maker’s Clubhouse students would tell you that a bubble is a thin layer of liquid surrounding a pocket of air or gas. How about whether or not bubbles have to be circular? Does the size, shape, or material of the wand matter? Are there any surfaces that a bubble won’t stick to? These are all questions that the Maker’s Clubhouse engineers are exploring as they prepare for their Bubble Bonanza Showcase later this month.
