Abstract

Most of us as children are fascinated with bubbles and their enchanting effects. Bubbles are very much familiar in our everyday lives such as foams of microcosm, the tingle in our mouths with the ingestion of a carbonated beverage, and the enjoyable bubbles we see while taking a bath. Bubbles play an incredible but uncredited role in everyday lives. It turns out that for ordinary types of bubbles such as the soap bubble we can explain in terms of the surface tension of the fluid involved.
A brief lecture will be given regarding physics of bubbles. The participants will be grouped into 35 groups and will be given materials to create their own bubbles. At the end of the workshop, the participants are expected to learn the physics of creating bubbles.
