Description:

This activity from the Exploratorium illustrates the principles of buoyancy, semipermeability, and interference as soap bubbles float on a cushion of carbon dioxide gas. Dry ice, gloves, and adult supervision are required to view the beautiful effect. The site also includes an explanation of the physics involved and other quick experiments that can be done with bubbles. This activity is part of Exploratorium's Science Snacks series.
