Ending with a Bubble?

So the last day of camp was all about bubbles-well not really all about bubbles. First activity dealt with dry ice and exploring how dry ice (which is really carbon dioxide in a frozen state) reacts with water and soap. Campers learned that if you change the temperature of the water you can change the type of bubbles produced!

After the dry ice activity, students learned that you can hold a bubble made with dry ice-but not with your hands! In order to hold a dry ice bubble, you have to use mittens! So on a really hot day our students put on their gloves for the sake of science!

Thanks to all of our parents for sharing their children with us! We had a blast!
