RECIPE for soap bubble solution
900ml distilled water
100ml dish soap
25ml corn syrup
Tray (cafeteria tray or cookie sheet with raised sides)
Put all ingredients into a bowl and stir well without introducing too much air so that you don’t make it foamy. Pour solution into a tray.
INSTRUCTIONS to make frame
4 straws with a flexible, bendable neck
Bend the neck of each straw so that they form “L” shapes, with a long end and a short end. Insert the short end of one straw into the the long end of the next straw so that together they all form a square frame.
Soap Bubble STRUCTURE
A soap bubble is a hollow sphere that has three layers: an inner layer of soap molecules, a middle layer of water molecules, and an outer layer of soap molecules. One end of each soap molecule is attracted to water and faces the middle layer of water. The other end of the soap molecules is not attracted to water and bonds well to dirt and oils.
Washing hands with SOAP
Soap molecules attract the oils and dirt on our skin and nails. Because the soap molecules are also attracted to water, they are easily washed away by running water, along with the impurities.
