How does temperature affect the life of a bubble?

Materials needed:
Bubble solution, Two clear jars or glasses,
Drinking straw, Plastic wrap

  1. Make sure the insides of the jar and rim are wet. Place a little bubble solution in the bottom of the jar.
  2. With a wet straw just above the bubble solution, blow bubbles until the jar is filled. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator or freezer. Time how long your bubbles last.
  3. Repeat step 2, but this time put the “Bubblearium” in direct sunlight. Time how long those bubbles last.
  4. What did you discover about the life of a bubble?

Answer: Bubbles last longer in cool temperatures. Heat makes them evaporate faster.
