Maker: Bubbles & Sponge Sculptures


Bubbles & Sponge Sculptures

Week of 10/6/14

When our Maker workshop wasn't outside enjoying the beautiful weather, it was inside conducting science experiments and exploring "odd" mediums of art. During Tuesday's class we concocted a super bubble mixture and then tested it out in a variety of ways. In addition to the bubbles, we divvied up 6 colored sponges and set to work creating some sculptures. On Thursday, after a nice walk through the arboretum we returned to the workshop and experimented with densities by creating a mini lava lamp. Enjoy our pictures!


Homemade bamboo bubble wands and super double bubble trouble!


Creating a Drawing Robot and a Shark out of sponges. Who knew?!


I found this experiment and we worked in pairs to question, hypothesize, and have fun!


See you next week!
