The Science in a Bubble: Illuminating Interfaces

How can some bugs walk on water? What can we learn about a soap bubble? How can we make oil and water mix? 

In this interactive presentation led by Professor Howard Stone of Princeton University, we will learn about the science of surfaces and interfaces. We will examine the boundary between liquid and air or between two liquids. This “surface” is so common that we take it for granted but we will see it introduces us to many fascinating ideas in science.  Children will help demonstrate the interaction of different kinds of molecules at these boundaries.
