Boo Bubbles™ – Dry Ice Experiments
Many students immediately tune out when they hear a word like sublimation. Not only is this word long and confusing, but students may be convinced that the lesson is going to be boring. As soon as you pull out some dry ice and tell your students they’re going to make bubbles, they’ll perk up. They’ll learn about sublimation and changing states of matter without even realizing it.
Create smoke-filled bouncing bubbles with the Boo Bubbles™ Activity Kit from Steve Spangler Science. Our dry ice smoke bubble activity is perfect for Halloween or just for fun in the classroom. Boo Bubbles are an easy and safe way for parents and teachers to explore the fascinating and cool science of dry ice with foggy bubbles.
Easy to Use and Fun for All Ages
Get ready to make some ghostly bubbles. Our all-in-one Boo Bubble Kit is easy to use. Just fill the dry ice bubble generator with warm water and add a few pieces of dry ice. Then, dip the bubble blower in the solution. When the dry ice reacts with water, smoke-filled bubbles are forced out of the bubble generator. By controlling the flow of the gas, you can make bubbles of any size. Best of all, when the bubble pops, a burst of fog is released. Your kids or students will shout with delight and ask to blow these smoke-filled bubbles again and again. Boo Bubbles can be incorporated into STEM classes to help children and students learn about the science of sublimation in a fun, hands-on way. Kids will marvel when they see dry ice transform from a solid into a gas before their eyes.
More Fun With Bubble Gloves
If you don’t want your awesome, dry ice bubbles to pop, you need the right pair of gloves.
If you’ve ever tried to catch a bubble with your hands, you know that’s it’s most likely going to burst. That’s because the oil in your hands keeps you from being able to hold onto a bubble without it popping. With the special Bubble Gloves included in this kit, you’ll become a master bubble-ologist in no time at all.
What Does It Teach?
With this dry ice bubble maker, kids will be empowered to study the rate of reaction as they experiment with different water temperatures and learn about the factors that turn ordinary bubbles into super-bouncing, smoke-filled bubbles.
*The Boo Bubbles kit does not include dry ice. Contact your local grocery store. We recommend purchasing 5 pounds to conduct all the experiments.
Steve Spangler Science
You may have seen Steve Spangler Science on the Ellen DeGeneres Show or during one of our traveling science shows, which have toured hundreds of elementary schools across the country. We’ve dedicated ourselves to inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers by providing them with exciting, hands-on experiments that will keep them interested and engaged in their education. We’re putting the fun back into science one activity at a time.
