Bubble magic at Northwest School

Students have been expanding their minds this summer at Northwest Elementary School, and nowhere was that more evident than in a first-grade classroom where they learned how to make bubbles.

As part of the Summer Enrichment Program, children in Mrs. Smith’s and Mrs. Farber’s class conducted experiments with bubbles. The students followed the scientific method by making a guess, or hypothesis, about the ratio of soap to water they would need. They then carried out their experiments by making different bubble wands and testing them along with their soap and water mixtures to find out which combination made the best bubbles.

STEAM activities, for science, technology, engineering, art and math, are part of the Summer Enrichment Program, which is serving approximately 550 students entering kindergarten through seventh grade.
