Mrs. Katz from Kannapolis NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Engineering Bubble Wands? YES PLEASE!

Help me give my students an opportunity to explore how bubbles behave and investigate the properties of different materials as they engineer bubble wands. The students will also demonstrate their creations in a Bubble Bonanza Showcase.

My Students

My STEM classrooms have diverse populations and I love it. The students are all colors, shapes, and sizes. They are bright, funny, energetic, and curious. The two schools I serve are Title I schools with over half of the student population qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch.

The students I teach face adversity in their daily lives, and they look forward to STEM class because they know that they will get to DO something with their hands and minds.

In each lesson, they learn about something that will help them better understand the world or get to create something that solves a problem. Students work in pairs and groups to reinforce their interpersonal communication skills as well.

My Project

I chose create a project for the Bubble Bonanza: Engineering Bubble Wands Bundle I LOVE BUBBLES. Did I mention that I LOVE BUBBLES?

I am really looking forward to sharing my passion with my students and showing them how something as simple a soap bubbles displays amazing physical and mathematical properties.

Through this kit and its materials, students will be able to have some good, clean fun while learning at the same time. This kit is a dream come true for me. It contains everything I need to tackle this project with a classroom full of students as soon as it is delivered. I can't wait to be elbow deep in bubble juice and share the joy of learning science and math with students.
