Bubble Lab
Penny Angelo

Did you know cell membranes are just like bubbles? 7th-grade students in Pres. Magoulias’ class took a hands-on approach to learn more about various cell concepts. Like bubbles, cell membranes are fluid and flexible and have the ability to self-repair. Students used straws to construct a frame from which they could create a bubble. Once the bubble was trapped inside, they could pass their entire arm through without ever popping the bubble! Students also learned that the organelles inside a cell have membranes as well and these membranes perform special functions. While the experiment produced a soapy mess, the lab has never been cleaner and students enjoyed every minute. We DO recommend trying this at home!
