Kubic Bubble Set000324
Curious Minds Did You Know? You can freeze bubbles! Since the shell of a bubble is a layer of water molecules wrapped with two thin layers of water it will freeze like normal water.
Soap film always makes the shape with the least surface area. With this Kubic Bubble set, you can make unusual and complex three-dimensional film shapes supported by cubes, tetrahedrons, octahedrons, and triangular prisms.
Children will love constructing the sets and making film shapes. Use the sets to discuss a variety of scientific and mathematical principles, from basic geometry to surface tension, light refraction and minimum energy surfaces. Or just enjoy the relaxing fun of these funky bubbles!
This set includes the pieces to make 1 set of 4 frameworks - tetrahedron, cube, prism and octahedron.
Supplied with teachers notes and suitable from primary to higher-level education this is a brilliant gift set for a young, excited and inquisitive mind. Ideal to foster curiosity and encourage scientific learning on rainy days and a fantastic school holiday activity.
