How playing with bubbles can teach kids to be scientists

The Science of Bubbles is part of Science Week, which is promoting science and discovery across Ireland.


CAN BUBBLES TEACH you about science? Scientific Sue thinks it can.

The science educator is bringing her Science of Bubbles show to Ireland as part of Science Week and says she hopes kids go away from the show wanting to “read more about science.”

“We go through a whole load of things to do with solids, liquids and gases,” she told 

She wants kids to be science literate so they be safe when conducting their experiments while also having fun.

“We’re all scientists and it’s (the show) just letting them be happy being a scientist,” Sue says.

Science Week is taking place across Ireland from 12-19 November to promote the potential that science and discovery offer Ireland.
